Driver rams sedan into Oakland preschool, police say act intentional
OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - A carjacking suspect slammed his sedan into an Oakland preschool on Thursday, injuring one staff worker but no children.
Police, however, said they believe the act was intentional at Highland Children’s Center on 86th Avenue about 3 p.m.
A witness told dispatch officials the driver drove across the street where the preschool is located, drove his sedan over the sidewalk, and “rammed the exterior gate multiple times” before crashing into the wall of the school, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The man has children at the pre-school, the Chronicle reported. He was arrested but no other details were released.
On Tuesday, a driver in Sunnyvale plowed his car into eight pedestrians, and police in that case believe the act was intentional too. In that case, the driver will be arraigned on Friday on eight counts of attempted homicide.
