CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Police are on the lookout for three suspects accused of running off after crashing their pickup truck into a daycare center Friday night.

The Youth Academy is a day care that specializes in taking care of kids whose parents work late.

There were still people inside including two small children who narrowly escaped getting hit around 11 p.m. Friday.

Surveillance video showed no evidence the truck even tried slowing down before it slammed into the daycare.

No one was hurt as a result of the incident. One of the managers of the daycare said she thinks the driver of the truck might have been intoxicated at the time of the crash.

"I hope people think before they get behind the wheel, because they put a lot of people in danger," said Hope Patonis, one of the daycare managers.

If you have any information about the crash at the Youth Academy in Clarksville, you have been asked to call the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS.
