Third child released from hospital after day care crash in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The last victim in a day care car crash was released from the hospital on Wednesday night. 

The family of Zyaire Davis, 5, spoke with 41 Action News on Wednesday as they waited for his release.

"We are just glad that all the kids are OK. Thank God. Thank God this is all that happened," Roger Mackey, Davis' grandfather, said.

He said his grandson has a cracked hip, tire marks on his ankle and scratches on his face, but he is walking.

"Someone just pulled him out from under the car," he said. "They got him up early and they have a little walker. He got up and took a few steps."

It was a close call when police say the driver of an SUV slammed into a parked car sending both vehicles into Christian Academy Daycare on Tuesday with nearly 40 kids inside.

Zyaire was hurt the worst. At the time, his family tells us he was asking for his sisters.

"All of them were at the daycare and the car just missed one of the rooms his other sister was in," Mackey said.

Mackey said Zyaire had four other sisters also at the daycare.

Now, they are making sure Zyaire will get any help he may need to cope with the trauma and they say they know how lucky they are to be able to take him home.

"He's going to be ok," Makcey said.

The family said Zyaire should be nearly back to normal within the next two weeks.

The two other child victim's in Tuesday's crash were treated and released on Tuesday night, according to authorities.
