US police seek driver after crash kills child
(04-10 10:15)

A dozen children were injured and a girl killed when a car slammed into a daycare center Wednesday in the US state of Florida after being struck by a hit-and-run driver, police said.
Several children suffered “very serious'' injuries following the incident at the KinderCare center in Winter Park, outside Orlando, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
The young victims were rushed to hospitals in the region, where one later died, as police launched a manhunt for the owner of the SUV that prompted the tragedy.
Authorities did not release details about the dead girl, but the daycare center is for children from six weeks to 12 years old, its website said.
One parent, Evette Rivera, 39, said she saw “a huge hole'' in the side of the building that led into a classroom. There were more than 50 children inside at the time, according to Fire Rescue.—AFP
