A motorist who told police she may have had a seizure struck the front of Carolyn Lewis Elementary School in Conway Friday.
The vehicle struck the outer wall of an unoccupied conference room, according to Assistant Superintendent Carroll Bishop, at around 1 p.m.
Carolyn Lewis Elementary School is the district’s newest elementary school, and classes began in the building last fall.
Bishop said Friday it didn’t appear that the vehicle caused structural damage to the new school building, but brick work would need to be replaced.
Police and school officials at the school said the two occupants, a young student and parent, were taken to the hospital by a family member as a precaution.
Police said the woman thought she may have had a seizure just before the accident.
The vehicle, a Ford Taurus, had deployed airbags and a busted windshield.
