WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old Los Angeles County boy escaped with just cuts and bruises after a car crashed into his bedroom, hitting his bed and pinning him against a wall.
Police are searching for the driver and a passenger, who ran away after the car plowed through a brick wall and into the house on a dead-end street in Whittier early Thursday.
The 4-year-old’s grandfather, David Mazon, tells KABC-TV that the boy’s father pulled him out from under the car. The boy was taken to a hospital but is expected to be OK.
Investigators say the driver was likely driving too fast to negotiate the sharp turn at the end of the street.
Mazon says the family feared such a crash was possible because of where the house sits at the dead-end.
