PHOENIX — A man has been arrested after a car crashed into parked car and a home in West Phoenix.

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, the incident happened around 9:15 p.m. on July 21 near 87th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Once on scene, rescue crews found a vehicle upside down in the garage area of a home.

Court records show that a two-year-old girl suffered facial cuts, a concussion and a broken thigh. The girl’s mother had four broken ribs and a lacerated liver, injuries which required surgery.

Authorities say no one inside the home was hurt.

Police say the driver, Ricardo Antonio Munoz, 21, was upset and arguing with his wife while driving. Police say Munoz was driving erratically and threatening to kill his wife.

Just before hitting the parked car and home, Munoz allegedly said, “We’re going to die.” Munoz’s car was traveling at 89 mph just before impact, according to court records.

Munoz was arrested Saturday at a West Valley hospital.

He is facing charges of attempted second-degree murder, child abuse, aggravated assault and endangerment.
