KATY/HARRIS COUNTY (Covering Katy News) - When a car struck a first grade classroom on Friday afternoon numerous students and staff members heard the crash but did not immediately know what was happening according to school district spokesperson Renie Deanda. It created some tense moments inside the school.
Not everyone saw the car go through the wall of a first grade classroom but many people heard the noise created by the crash. So, for a brief period of time staff and students went into a secure mode that involved bring students back into the school Deanda told Covering Katy News.
No students or staff were injured according to a letter from principal Yvette Sylvan.
There were no students in the classroom when it was struck by the car according to Deanda. The students had been dismissed for the day.
The classroom will not be usable until a very large hole in the wall is repaired. That work was underway Tuesday morning.
"According to the Katy ISD Police Department, a driver sustained a medical emergency resulting in the vehicle being driven into a section of the campus’ building," principal Sylvan said in her letter to parents.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing by the Katy ISD Police Department.
