Car crashes into house

And this time, the offending vehicle leaves behind human offspring!
According to a news release, the driver was driving recklessly with his son sitting on his lap when the SUV jumped the curb and struck the front portion of a home in the 100 block of Morales Court in the Villa Serena Community in New Braunfels at 8:50 p.m.

"All of a sudden, he made like a right turn, and he went straight into the house," said Rosie Bernal, a neighbor, who witnessed the crash. “It sounded terrible. We thought he was probably dead.”

Moments later, the driver fled on foot and left the child behind at the scene, the news release said. The child and the residents inside the home were not injured.

Candidate for Father of the Year, I'm sure.

Bonus strangeness: News release? Who the hell is putting out a news release about something like this? Cops just talk to the cameras. Neighbors just talk to the cameras. Companies and agencies and other firms with public affairs and media relations departments put out news releases.

Could it have been the SUV responsible for the news release? Clearly a cry for help.
