The crash happened at approximately 10:45 p.m. at South Monaco Parkway and East Yale Avenue. When the dust settled the truck was stuck halfway through Jay and Beth Mankamyer’s home’s front brick wall.

The 18-month-old boy was sleeping in his crib and was not hurt.

“I was praying. I was terrified. We were really glad that he’s fine,” Beth Mankamyer said.

She said they had just rearranged the room not too long ago. If they hadn’t, their son Jack may have been killed. Police said the driver went to Swedish Medical Center and may have suffered from a medical condition.

On Monday morning a large hole in the wall was boarded up with boards.
