Glendale woman says truck crashed through fence, driver fled the scene

A Glendale woman says she was startled awake early Friday morning after a truck crashed through a cinder block wall outside of her home.

Breanna Stonebraker says around 1 a.m. she discovered that a truck — likely a Dodge Ram — came plowing through her fence sending broken pieces at her home's window.

"My son was very frantic," Stonebraker said. "He was screaming 'mom, mom, mom get outside! Everybody get outside."

The family ran outside to a cloud of dust and smoke. Thankfully, everyone was safe and accounted for. However, pieces of the wall were scattered throughout her backyard.

"He must've been fast because all the rebar and everything from that is smashed way over there," she said.

Parts of the car were also left behind in the yard, including parts of the bumper and grill. 

"There is a shot glass somewhere that we found in the debris and I'm not sure where it's at right now," Stonebraker said. "But my son picked it up and it smelled like alcohol — like fresh alcohol." 

After the crash, the truck fled the scene and pieces of the truck were discovered on 59th Avenue after the suspect drove away.

So far police have been unable to locate the suspect or truck. The truck is described as an older model Dodge with a two-tone paint job (blue on top, gray on bottom). The landlord is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the suspect or suspects responsible.

Anyone with information is urged to call Glendale Police.
