KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- A car crashed into a fence surrounding a preschool Wednesday, and it happened while kids were playing outside.
Grand Junction police officials say around 11:30 a.m. a car heading eastbound on Grand Avenue ran a red light and struck a Chevrolet pickup truck.
The collision knocked the car into a fence that surrounds the Kare-A-Lot preschool, located off of Grand Avenue and 12th Street.
Officials say none of the children who were outside at the time were seriously injured.
"There were about 15 kids on the playground at the time of the incident. One of them got hit with some debris, but it just gave him a bump on the head; he was treated and released on scene," said Sgt. Dave Stassen with the Grand Junction Police Department.
Three people in the car were transported to the hospital.
Officials say the driver will be cited for running a red light.
They say they don't believe speed or alcohol were factors in the accident.
Officials say they closed down 12th Street going southbound for nearly a half-hour.
