(BELLEVUE, Wash.) — A 9-month-old in Washington State is being called a miracle baby after an SUV slammed through the part of the home and into the crib he was sleeping in.
Somehow, the boy wasn’t harmed.
The accident happened Tuesday in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue. Investigators say the 34-year-old driver accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes while pulling into the apartment complex.
Bellevue Police Officer Seth Tyler said the boy’s parents were shaken.
“The parents were frantic at the time of the crash. They heard the commotion, they went into the room, obviously saw the car in their baby’s room and grabbed their child,” Tyler said.
The crib was heavily damaged by the impact. But miraculously, the baby was fine. Medics on the scene checked the baby’s condition — and determined that he was uninjured.
For now, the family is staying with a neighbor because the home sustained significant damage.
The driver of the SUV has not been charged after authorities deemed it an accident.
