BEACH PARK, Ill. -- An unlicensed driver slammed into a daycare center this morning and slammed an 11-year-old girl to a hospital.

The Lake County sheriff's office says the 16-year-old driver was turning into the center's parking lot when she hit the gas instead of the brake and lost control.

At the time, several children were eating breakfast.  They were hit by bricks and some were pinned under the car.

The 11-year-old was hospitalized at her parent's request but has since been sent home.
The driver had two adults with her at the time.

She is due in court September 14th.
