By Kevin Jefferies/Brad Kellar

Greenville – A man who crashed into a Greenville daycare center yesterday is facing multiple charges of intoxication assault. Two adults and two children received minor injuries in the crash that sent the man's vehicle through the wall of Wee Wisdom Play School and Kindergarten. The 43-year-old black male fled the scene but was soon apprehended by police. One of the center's teachers and an 18-month-old child were transported via helicopter to hospitals in Dallas after the accident. The man faces four counts of intoxication assault and four counts of failure to stop and render aid. His identity is being withheld pending formal charges.
