Suspected DUI Driver Arrested After Crashing Pickup Truck Into Rialto Home

The home's residents were worried because a 12-year-old child typically sleeps in the living room - the site of the crash.

A Rialto family woke up to a startling discovery early Saturday when a suspected DUI driver crashed his pickup truck into their living room.

The residents were woken up by a loud crash just before 3 a.m. as they were all sleeping in their home, located on the 1000 block of Sycamore Avenue, according to Sgt. Balleweg of the Rialto Police Department.

Family members were worried after finding the truck in the house because a 13-year-old boy tends to sleep on the living room couch, near the site of the crash. They later found that the child decided to sleep in a bedroom that evening; unknowingly saving his own life.

The driver of the pickup truck was arrested and no injuries were reported.
