A speeding driver slammed his car into a six-year-old’s bedroom wall in Santa Ana late Thursday night, according to Fox News.
The crash happened at around 10 p.m. at the 2600 block of West St. Gertrude Place, located near the intersection of Fairview Street and Warner Avenue.
Apparently the vehicle, a Volvo, hopped over a sidewalk, over the home’s landscaping and into the wall of a child’s bedroom that was pushed in about three feet, according o the OCFA.
To make matters worse the child was in the room at the time of the crash! Fortunately no one was injured in the crash.
SAPD investigators believe that the driver may have suffered a medical emergency. The driver showed remorse after the crash. The driver was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
The front end of the home suffered major damage. However, OCFA officials determined that the structure of the home was not compromised, which allowed the family to remain at their home overnight.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
