Police identify driver injured after crash into daycare


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Columbus police have identified 30-year old Maurice L. Marshall as the driver who allegedly rammed through the front doors of Babies and Beyond Child Care Center in the Hilltop Friday afternoon.

Marshall was the only person injured; he was taken to a hospital after police tased him.

Police have listed a 33-year old female as the victim in the case, but have not said how she’s involved.

The manager of the daycare said that the car went so far inside the building that it went inside the baby room, but no one was in there at the time. A witness said two people were in the car, with the second person being arrested.

Fire department personnel were called to the scene, in the 3000 block of Sullivant Avenue, about 1:50 p.m. Friday.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, the car was still completely inside the building.

Any information received on the incident is being shared with Columbus Homeland Security, according to CPD.
