Two children were injured in a Gwinnett County car accident when a vehicle crashed into a daycare center. According to a WSB TV news report, the car crash occurred at the Learning Hive Child Development Center on Scenic Highway 124 in Lawrenceville. Officials say the van crashed into the daycare after the driver swerved to avoid another car that had turned onto the roadway. Of the four children and two teachers in the room at the time of the collision, two children suffered minor injuries. Officials have cited the other driver involved and said that heavy rain may have contributed to the crash as well.
The authorities have issued a citation to the driver who caused the van driver to swerve. That driver had just turned onto the roadway. Motorists entering traffic from a driveway, alley or parking lot must yield the right-of-way. Motorists who fail to properly yield can face citations from the authorities and they can be held accountable for the damages they cause.
The daycare involved in this car crash was closed immediately following the accident so that management could sort out who should be held accountable for the damages. This accident also raises a number of liability issues for the two young injured victims. When a vehicle crashes into the building, it can result in a complicated legal battle between the business owner, the property owner, the drivers involved and a number of other potentially liable parties.
It is important for victims of these types of accidents to stay abreast of the ongoing investigation. The person or people responsible for the accident can be held accountable for the resulting injuries.
