INDIO, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a 10-year-old boy suffered major injuries after a driver slammed his pickup truck into a Southern California home several times.
Indio police Sgt. Dan Marshall said a man involved in a domestic disturbance Sunday fled a home, got into the truck and crashed into a house several doors away.
The vehicle struck the boy, then backed up before hitting the house again, causing minor injuries to a man who was in the house.
The truck backed up a third time and struck the garage. Marshall said neighbors subdued the driver until police arrived.
He was taken into custody after police determined he had a warrant for his arrest.
The boy and man were taken to the hospital. Marshall said their injuries were not life threatening.
