A vehicle crashed into an Orlando-area day care today, killing one child and injuring about a dozen more, reports the Orlando Sentinel. At least one adult was reported to be injured as well. Several of the victims were in serious condition hours after this afternoon's accident in Winter Park. Police say a Dodge Durango crashed into another vehicle, which went out of control and smashed into the KinderCare building. The driver of the Durango fled the scene in his vehicle, though police later found it in Winter Park. Authorities have named 26-year-old Robert Corchado as a person of interest.
