LANCASTER, Pa. — Authorities say three children were hurt when a 77-year-old man drove his sport-utility vehicle into the side of a day care in central Pennsylvania.

William Landis was visiting an ATM in a parking lot in East Petersburg around noon Thursday. Police say that, for an unknown reason, he ended up driving the SUV across the parking lot, over a gravel embankment, through a fence and into the side of the Wee Care Day Care.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports three children, ages 3 and 4, suffered moderate injuries. Landis was also hurt.

Manheim Township police say there were a dozen children in the room at the time of the accident. Sgt. Tom Rudzinski says police are working to figure out exactly what happened.
