Police seek driver of big rig that crashed into Monterey Park home
The sole resident of the house in the 500 block of Casuda Canyon Drive, near Highlands Park, was uninjured when the truck ripped through her bedroom about 9 p.m., ultimately coming to a stop in a side yard, said Monterey Park Police Lt. Jess Alvarado.“Luckily, she was mopping her kitchen floor at that time,” said Alvarado.
The home, which suffered extensive damage, was red-tagged and the woman was displaced, he added.
“We assume he ran from the wreckage,” Alvarado said. Anyone with information is asked to call Monterey Park police at 626-307-1238.
