Car Crashes into Home Injuring Sleeping Man
An 82-year-old Fresno, California man is in critical condition after a speeding car crashed into his bedroom as he was sleeping.
A Clovis police officer spotted a VW Jetta being driven by a 22-year-old man who ran a red light. The officer alerted other officers who then pulled over the Jetta. When they approached the car, the driver then drove off at high speed. Officers chased the suspect, but then backed off hoping he would reduce speed. However, the driver continued to speed through stop signs and then lost control. The Jetta then crashed into the home and hit the occupant.
The driver then jumped out of the vehicle and was caught a short distance from the accident. Police say the driver's blood alcohol content registered at .15. He was booked and faces charges of felony evading, felony hit and run, and felony DUI with injuries.
The injured man was taken to the hospital with serious internal head injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured after being struck by a vehicle, please contact an experienced injury lawyer in your area.
