REDDING, Calif. -

A woman was sent to the hospital after the car she was in crashed into a home, officials said a DUI driver could be to blame.

Shasta County Sheriff's Sergeant Pat Kropholler said the crash was reported at 6:34 p.m.

Kropholler said an unidentified man in a Ford Ranger was driving on Los Flores Street when he ran a stop sign and hit a Honda headed on Los Gatos Avenue.

The crash sent the car sailing into a home and fence, while the truck hit uneven pavement and flipped.

The truck landed within inches of the home.

Kropholler said a man, woman, and 3 year-old child were in the Honda.

The woman, who complained of pain, was taken to the hospital.

The child was OK.

Terra Farley and Tristan Farley were in the home at the time of the collision.

"We were in our back room and all of a sudden we heard a huge bang and a pop and the house kinda moved so we rushed out instantly and there is a truck in our yard," described Terra Farley.

Husband Tristan said he's thankful the truck missed hitting his car.

"It's actually pretty crazy because that is where I park my car. I just decided not to park it there tonight," said Tristan Farley.

Kropholler said  the driver of the truck may have been under the influence of drugs at the time of the wreck, but would not specify what.

The driver, who has not been identified, was wanted on a warrant of narcotics possession.
