Riverside Family Displaced After Truck Slams into their Home

RIVERSIDE – A family of four was sleeping soundly in their Riverside home, when a Toyota pickup truck slammed into their bedroom.  

Just before 3:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2016, the mother, father and two children were sleeping in their respective rooms of their home in the 3200 block of Tangerine when they awoke to a horrendous sound. A vehicle crashed into their home and went through the exterior bedroom wall where three of the four residents were sleeping in a bed.

“The crash pushed the bed through a closet and into an adjacent second bedroom, smashing through an interior wall,” the City of Riverside Fire Department officials said. Amazingly, no one was injured as a result of the crash, but the home was “Red Tagged” declaring it unsafe to occupy.

The Riverside City Technical Rescue Team responded to improve structure stability to prevent collapse and secured the badly damaged home. The two adults and two children were taken in by family temporarily. A total of six fire personnel responded to the scene of the collision. The cause of the crash remains under investigation at this time.
