SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento family was left shaken up after a driver crashed their vehicle into their home and nearly struck their 11-year-old son before driving off.
The crash happened just after 2:30 a.m. on Thursday in the area of Las Palmas and Norwood avenues in Sacramento.
Fortunately, no one was injured, but that could have easily not been the case, as the child was sleeping near where the crash happened.
“What kind of people would do this?” Lucy Yang said.
Yang said the car plowed into the side of her home and into the bedroom where her three children were sleeping.
“There is definitely an angel watching over my little boy,” she said.
Yang said the front of the car landed just inches from her son’s head. She said a truck pulled up soon after with a male driver and other women inside.
“I hear one of the ladies say, ‘Don’t call the cops, don’t call the cops,’ and my husband turned and said call the cops,” Yang said.
She said the man driving the car that crashed into her home got out and jumped into the truck and they pulled off before police could arrive.
“You guys are just some cold-blooded people that would walk away and not even say sorry or anything,” Yang said.
The mother of three said all of this happened just one day after she returned to work after three months off because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“How are we gonna find a place to live and how are we gonna find a place to put our stuff and not have to pay storage,” she said.
Yang is calling on the person responsible to come forward.
“Thank God that my son is OK,” she said. “Whoever did this, you should come and take full responsibility for it.”
It’s unclear what caused the driver to crash into the home. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the police.
