PHOTOS: A man was injured Monday morning when a car crashed into his Parkland residence and knocked a wall down on top of him, sheriff's officials said.
The driver who hit the house is now at large after fleeing from the scene.
Deputies, state troopers and medics responded to the residence, a duplex near 111th Street South and Sheridan Avenue, after receiving reports of a vehicle hitting a building, said Sgt. Darren Moss of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.
They found that a resident of the home had been sitting in a recliner when the car, a Ford Mustang GT, knocked the wall down on top of him.
The man was able to crawl out from under the wall into a corner of the home, where two deputies and a trooper found him and pulled him out of the house. The man was then taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
