FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - No injuries were reported after authorities say a woman crashed her SUV into a southwest Florida day care.
 
The News-Press reports that the crash occurred Monday morning as a group of 2-year-olds played outside Rita's Daycare Center  just off Palm Beach Boulevard in the Tice neighborhood in Fort Myers.
 
The center's owner, Rita Morales, says teachers had been watching the Ford Explorer come down the street and began yelling "stranger danger." All but two of the children lined up by the door, as they had been taught. A teacher scooped up the last two children just in time to get them out of the SUV's path.
 
Authorities didn't immediately identify the SUV's driver. It wasn't clear what caused the crash.
