3 injured when hit-and-run driver plows into bedrooms of Anaheim apartment

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- Three people suffered minor injuries early Thursday morning when a hit-and-run driver crashed into an Anaheim apartment where the residents were sleeping, authorities said.

The black Nissan pickup truck plowed through an exterior wall and into two bedrooms in the incident, which was reported at 3:10 a.m. in the 3000 block of Frontera Street, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

The victims, two females and one male, were transported to a hospital, police said, adding that it was an incredibly close call.

"I've been told inches, literally inches, and everybody is talking it's miraculous they weren't more seriously injured if not killed," said Sgt. Daron Wyatt.

The driver of the pickup fled on foot, and a description of the at-large suspect was not available.

The ground-level apartment and one above it were red-tagged after the collision, investigators said. Seven adults and two children were displaced.
