KANSAS CITY — The last child still hospitalized after a car came crashing into a Kansas City day care center is being released.

Children's Mercy spokeswoman Jessica Salazar said the child was going home Wednesday after staying overnight for observation. Two other children were treated and released.

The children were among 40 inside the Christian Academy Child Care east of downtown Tuesday when a sport-utility vehicle knocked an unoccupied car into the building. Police said the SUV's driver was "approximately 80" years old. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Police spokeswoman Marisa Barnes said Wednesday that there was no new information about the cause of the crash that left a giant hole in the side of the day care facility. A utility pole also was struck.
