UPDATE 11:15 PM -- According to a Facebook post from PCHS, school will be in session on Thursday.


PEKIN (WEEK) - Shortly after 10:00 p.m. Wednesday night, our newsroom received several tips saying a car drove into Pekin Community High School.

When our crews arrived, this was the scene:

Our reporter on scene said police would not provide any information about the crash, and asked us to call the department's public information officer in the morning.

Our reporter observed glass broken, desks mangled, and people trying to clean up the mess. The sedan type car was being towed from the classroom off of Parkway Dr.

We also reached out to the school district's Superintendent, Danielle Owens, to ask for more information. In an email, Owens said the building is secure and school will be in session Thursday, as usual.

This story will be updated.
