COLUMBIA — A car crashed into the corner of Tiger Tots Children Development Center at 1611 Paris Road on Monday morning.
No one was in the building at the time, Paul Prevo, owner of the center, said. As a result of the accident, children were moved to another building.
Prevo estimated the accident caused around $10,000 worth of damage.
According to a news release from the Columbia Fire Department, a green Lexus was partially embedded in the northeast corner of the building when the crews arrived at 6:28 a.m.
Firefighters were concerned that the building's structure was affected, so they asked the City's office of Building and Site Development to come and assess the building.
After the assessors determined the building's foundation had been damaged, firefighters built wooden shoring to support the corner of the building before removing the car.
There were no charges filed against the driver, said Columbia Police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer. The driver was not injured, Stroer said.
Prevo said police told him that the driver was sober at the time of the crash.
