Three children in Laval, Que., were injured after a vehicle driven by an 80-year-old woman crashed through the window of a nursery school, local police have confirmed.
Laval police reported on Twitter that three children were injured in a crash at 538 St. Martin Blvd. West, just north of Montreal. Police say the driver of the vehicle is 80 years old.
The children were hurt inside Garderie Face a Face, a bilingual daycare for children between two and five years old. The daycare is located inside a strip mall at that address.
The children were taken to Ste. Justine Hospital in Montreal. Police have described the injuries as minor.

The driver also suffered minor injuries after her silver sedan crashed through a plate glass window and came to rest entirely inside the daycare.
