SUV crashes into Maternity BVM school

A woman and child were taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon when their SUV crashed through the Maternity BVM school building in Bustleton.

Around 3:30 p.m., after school had let out for the day, the female driver lost control of the vehicle, which can be seen here penetrating a wall. It’s not clear what caused the crash, but the injuries appeared to be minor.
