Dearborn — A Dearborn middle school is open for class Wednesday after a car crashed into its building, officials said.

The crash happened at Bryant Middle School, which is located at North Vernon near Telegraph and Cherry Hill roads.

"District crews have been able to secure the scene of the accident at Bryant and check all systems," Andrew Denison wrote in a message to parents on the school's website. "The school is safe and will be open on Wednesday. Remember, Wednesday is a late start day!"

He said in another message on the site the crash happened at about 9 p.m. He said a car ran into the south end of the school and broke through a wall.

Dearborn police officials said the driver is a 33-year-old male resident of the city. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

"Fortunately there were no other injuries, but a recreation league basketball game was ending and players and coaches were asked to leave the building," the principal said.

Police said Tuesday the cause of the accident is under investigation.
