PEA RIDGE — Authorities in Northwest Arkansas have detained the driver of a car that crashed into a daycare teacher pushing a stroller filled with young children, injuring the teacher and two children.

Pea Ridge Police Department spokesman Mike Lisenbee said the woman was pushing a stroller with eight children when the crash occurred Wednesday. Lisenbee told Fort Smith television station KFSM that the teacher and two children were taken by ambulance to a hospital with injuries that aren't life-threatening.

The other children were not hurt.

Lisenbee said the driver of the vehicle told police that he fell asleep, but that authorities will investigate whether he was impaired.

The spokesman added that the crash happened on a quiet, dead-end road with limited traffic.
