WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Looking at a little story now developing in Memphis, Tennessee, actually just outside of Memphis, Tennessee where a car driver struck at least eight young kids in an elementary school outside Memphis, critically injuring at least one of them. We don't have a lot of details. You are looking at some live pictures of the aftermath, though, of this incident.
The severity of the other students' injuries not immediately known, but we do see the car that apparently the maroon sedan that apparently crashed through an overhang came to rest near the building and a lot of children were outside. The school serves as a Kindergarten through fourth grade in Cordova, that's a suburb east of Memphis. We'll find out what's going on over there and bring you some more information as we get it.
