A pickup truck smashed through three yards before coming to a stop in a kitchen of a two-storey house in Red Deer’s Deer Park neighbourhood on Friday morning.

Red Deer RCMP say the truck was eastbound on 39th Street towards Davison Drive when it crossed into the oncoming lane, jumped the curb and left the road. It collided with the rear fence of one house on Denison Crescent and continued travelling east.

The truck then crashed through two fences of two additional houses before colliding with the rear of the last house, narrowly missing a woman and her infant child.

The crash happened around 2:25 a.m.

Red Deer RCMP spokeswoman Const. Sabrina Grunow said no one was injured in the houses, along with the suspect who fled the scene.

He was found and arrested a short time later by police.

Alcohol is a factor in the collision, say police.

Significant damage was sustained to vinyl fencing, attached decks at two residences, a shed, plus structural damage to the house where the truck ended up.

Charges are pending against a 24-year-old Red Deer man.

Red Deer city RCMP police dog services and the forensic identification section assisted with the investigation.

The police investigation continues.
