6-year-old Camlyn Lee of Alabama, died and others were injured after a woman driving a Mercedes crashed into the dentist’s office.
The accident took place at around 9:30 a.m. at Vital Smiles in Midfield, where the little boy was getting a routine cleaning.
Lee, who was a kindergarten student at Central Park Elementary School, died in front of his grandmother and teenage brother.
Six other people, including a pregnant woman and the boy’s grandmother, were taken to hospitals with non-life threatening injures.
The driver told police that she was trying to park at the strip mall parking lot where the dentist office is located, when her vehicle lurched forward into the building, according to Midfield Fire Chief Larry Manning.
Police are investigating the incident. They are reviewing surveillance video and are speaking with witnesses. So far, no charges have been filed against the driver as it seems to have been a tragic accident.
