One of the girls was run over by the vehicle and suffered wounds to her face.

A doctor at Montreal’s Ste-Justine Hospital said she is stable and that the injuries could have been much worse.

One of the other children was under observation while the third was released from hospital.

“We’re pleased the injuries are not as serious as we could imagine given the situation,” said Dr. Antonio D’Angelo, the emergency room chief at the hospital.

The car smashed through the plate-glass window at the front of the Face-a-Face daycare, around 2 p.m.

Squads of police, firefighters and ambulances raced to the scene.

Police say an investigation is underway.

The daycare centre is located at street level in a strip mall.
