Clearwater, FL (June 14, 2022) – Six people were injured after a driver lost control of her car and crashed into a crowd of people near a daycare in Clearwater on Monday, June 13.

At around 5:30 p.m., a 57-year-old woman was driving a pickup truck on Lakeview Drive near Building Blocks Children’s Center. The grandmother was on her way to pick up a grandchild when she saw a child in front of her vehicle. She hit the accelerator instead of the brake and hit several people. 

A mother and her three children were hurt. The mother was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, and the juveniles were transported to All Children’s Hospital for treatment. The driver and a staff member at the daycare were also injured and hospitalized. 

The driver was cited for careless driving. An ongoing investigation into the accident is in progress.
