Children Recovering After Truck Hits Their Home
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth family is looking for answers a week after a pick up slammed into their home and took off. All four children who were inside the home when the truck crashed into it were hurt.
Six-year-old Jaime Anchondo is one of the injured children. He even had visible tire marks on his back after the accident. He’s walking now and points to his head when CBS 11 asked him where he’s hurting. He was released from the hospital right afterwards, but was rushed back in pain a few nights ago.
“He was complaining of headaches, stomachache, backache and his arm started hurting,” says his mother Monica Medina “And then he started complaining about chest pain.”
Medina says since her kids were trapped underneath the truck, they haven’t felt at ease.
“Any noise or anything they are paranoid,” says Medina. “Any noise scares them.”
Medina says the driver escaped speeding off in the truck and a passenger took off on foot. Police later found the pick up on the same street hidden in a back yard. A week later there are still no arrests. Fort Worth Police have the truck but won’t say why they haven’t made any arrests.
“Please keep in mind this is an active open investigation,” says Sergeant Kelly Peel with the Fort Worth Police Department “We have a person of interest that investigators have spoken with and we continue to follow up on any leads as they develop.”
Police won’t say what charges the driver would face even once an arrest is made because they don’t want to speculate on the charges at this time.
Meantime, Medina says she was hoping the driver would be caught already, “I know it will take time for us to get back together — get back to normal.”
The family can’t live in the home until repairs are made to the roof and the front of the house.
