Girl escapes injury when pickup truck hits her house

August 20, 2019

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A 6-year-old girl escaped injury when police say a drunk driver crashed a pickup truck into her bedroom early Monday morning.

The Idaho State Journal reports Aubree Haggard was sleeping on the couch when the GMC pickup struck her Pocatello home. No one in the Haggard family was injured, but they told the newspaper the home was knocked off its foundation by more than a foot, and if Aubree had been in her room she would have been injured by the impact.

The Pocatello Police Department says the driver had a blood alcohol content of nearly twice the legal limit. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of a head injury.
