GLENDALE, Ariz. - A 6-year-old child drove a truck into a house near 85th Avenue and Northern on Feb. 9, which caused a gas leak and left one person injured, Glendale police say.
"I don’t know what the 6-year-old was thinking. He probably thought I’m going to go get mommy and daddy coffee, who knows," said Ligia Visoan.
Police say the boy woke up in the middle of the night and stole his parents' truck keys. He started the truck, reversed it, and drove into a house down the street.
"I thought she was joking at first, but nope it really happened," said Visoan.
The entire family was home at the time.
"My sister actually sleeps in that room right there where the truck went through. She got flung from her bed and hit the closet doors, but she’s fine. She has some scratches and bruises but that’s it," said Visoan.
The water line was hit, which flooded the home. The crash also started a gas leak, but the lines have since been shut off. Visoan says it's a small price to pay knowing no one was seriously hurt.
"All of the debris from the room is, like, streaming down the hallways. It’s probably going to have to be a complete remodel for every part of the house," said Visoan.
The car has been towed from the house, and the child is with his parents. Glendale Police and Fire are investigating.
