REDLANDS – A  10-year-old girl is recovering from injuries after a vehicle collided into the home where she was sleeping on Thursday morning.

Just before 7:00 a.m. the 20-year-old female driver was heading westbound on San Bernardino Avenue in her 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. She lost control and crashed into a home on Occidental. “The driver lost control and crashed into the home on Occidental, traveling through a bathroom and two bedrooms, including the bedroom where the 10-year-old was sleeping, before crashing through the back wall of the home, continuing through the back yard, through another fence, over a 6-foot retaining wall and into the master bedroom of a home in the 1600 block of Nathan Court where the vehicle came to rest,” Redlands Police officials said in a news release.

Police and Paramedics responded to the scene in the 1600 block of Occidental Street to find the g10-year-old girl suffering from multiple broken bones. Two other children and their mother were inside the home and although one other child suffered minor abrasions, no other injuries were reported.

Temporary shelter was provided to the family. The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
