A cashier at a Laurel County truck stop was sent to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital on Tuesday after a child crashed a car through the building.
Tina Tyree, 36, of East Bernstadt, was pinned between the counter and a wall when a Honda Accord crashed into the 49'er Truck Stop on Ky. 909 at about 4:45 p.m., state police said in a news release.
Tyree was in fair condition at UK on Tuesday night.
State police said in a news release that Jackie Dunn, 43, of McKee, was sitting in the front passenger's seat of the Honda, and two children, ages 4 and 5, were in the back seat.

The 4-year-old climbed into the front and put the car into drive, causing it to go through a short wall and window, hitting the register counter, state police said.
