Port Carbon police Chief Jon Bowman says the distracted driver swerved to avoid a stopped vehicle but ended up smashing into the day care center.
The car traveled 20 feet inside the building, destroying an entrance near a children's coat rack. A 22-year-old employee was treated for a minor leg injury and released from the hospital.
Bowman says the driver failed field sobriety tests. She was taken to the hospital for a blood-alcohol test then released. Charges will be filed if the test comes back positive.
