A young child has minor injuries after a pickup truck crashed into a home where she was sleeping in Brampton.

Emergency crews responded to the collision on Edenbrook Hill Drive, near Chinguacousy Road and Bovaird Drive, around 11:45 p.m. Monday.

Police say a vehicle struck two parked cars and crashed into the side of a home that had residents inside.

A young girl was sleeping in the room where the truck crashed through the wall. She was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Police tell CityNews she is “extremely lucky” to not have suffered more serious injuries.

The driver fled the scene on foot and was seen limping away before officers arrived. He was eventually tracked down and remains in police custody.

A passenger from the truck was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening-injuries.

There is no word on what caused the collision.

The pickup truck remains lodged into the side of the house. Investigators are concerned about the structural integrity of the home and say the vehicle will not be moved until an engineer completes an assessment.
