Car crashes into Scarborough performing arts school

A car smashed through the front of a Scarborough performing arts school on Friday night.

The incident happened at JDL Performing Arts school on Markham Road near Passmore Avenue.

Josie de Leon, the school's owner, said she was "shocked" to see the crash on television this morning.

She said the school is currently on break and no one was inside at the time of the crash. She isn't yet sure about the extent of the damage.

"For me, everyone is safe, no one got hurt — that's what my biggest concern was," de Leon said.

It's not yet clear what caused the crash or if anyone in the car was injured.

JDL Performing Arts school offers classes in singing, stage performance, dance and drama, and has a second location in Mississauga.
