ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — One child injured when a car crashed into a Florida day care center remains in critical condition at an Orlando hospital.

Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children spokeswoman Katie Dagenais provided an update Thursday on the eight patients brought there after the Wednesday crash at a KinderCare. One girl died after arriving. In addition to the one child in critical condition, three others are in serious condition. One is in fair condition. Two were discharged.

Authorities say five additional victims were taken to other Orlando-area hospitals. Two others were treated and released at the scene.

The Florida Highway Patrol is searching for 26-year-old Robert Alex Corchado. The agency says he was driving a Dodge Durango that struck a convertible, which jumped a curb and smashed into the day care building.
