November 7, 2011

A 9-year-old girl was injured after a truck drove through an Indianapolis home near West 38th Street and Georgetown Road early Sunday morning. Homeowner Jamie Cutler woke up about 3:15 a.m. when the truck crashed into her home in the 3600 block of Beasley Drive, pushing the couch her daughter was sleeping on through a bedroom wall. Her daughter escaped injury, but Cutler’s 9-year-old niece was found under a pile of debris. The girl was taken to Riley Hospital for Children in stable condition. The driver of the truck, Gonzalo Cruz-Cruz, 23, of Indianapolis fled the scene on foot. He was arrested a short time later on charges of drinking while driving and leaving the scene of a crash causing injury. Damage to the home was estimated at $30,000.
