WINTER PARK (CBSMiami/AP) —The man driving a car which crashed into a Winter Park day care center was not on drugs at the time of the crash, according to troopers.

Albert Dean Campbell, 61, crashed into the day care after he was rear-ended by an SUV.

The Florida Highway Patrol said on Thursday that Campbell had no alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of the incident.

The FHP is still investigating last week’s crash.

An FHP report released Wednesday says Campbell was preparing to turn right onto the private drive of a KinderCare when a Dodge Durango driven by Robert Corchado rear-ended the car. The impact propelled the car through the KinderCare parking lot and into the building.

A 4-year-old girl was killed, and 14 others were injured.

Corchado was charged with fleeing the scene of a fatal crash and remains in jail with bail set at $100,000.
