Girl Injured When SUV Crashes Into Mundelein Martial Arts School

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A girl was injured Wednesday morning when an SUV plowed into a martial arts school in north suburban Mundelein.

Mundelein Fire Department Deputy Chief Darren Brents said a driver was dropping off his child at the Ki Martial Arts school around 8:15 a.m., when his Toyota Highlander jumped the curb, and went through the glass wall, coming to a stop 10 to 15 feet inside the building.

An 8-year-old girl who was inside the school was injured, and was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. She was treated and released by Wednesday afternoon.

The driver suffered minor injuries from broken glass, but refused medical treatment, according to Brents. His child was not hurt.

Mundelein Police were investigating. Charges were pending against the 37-year-old man who was driving the Toyota.
