UNION CITY — Two families living in a duplex were displaced but escaped injury early Sunday after a car slammed into the building during a two-car crash, a fire official said.
A pickup truck also ended up on the front lawn of the single-story duplex in the 3700 block of Horner Street, Alameda County Fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said. The crash happened just before 1 a.m.
The two drivers of the cars fled, but police detained one of them, Knowles said. Police did not immediately issue a statement on the incident, and calls to the department Sunday morning were not returned.
Firefighters from Station 32 heard the first collision, which involved one of the vehicles going into the Alvarado Boulevard bus stop, Knowles said. The station is located only a few hundred feet from the crash scene.
After dispatching themselves, firefighters found the heavily damaged truck on the lawn, and a BMW 3 Series completely inside the duplex, Knowles said. The bus stop was completely destroyed, she said.
A mother, father and their three adult children were displaced from one of the units, and two adults were displaced from the other one, Knowles said. The Red Cross aided the family of five, while the family of two went to stay with relatives, she said.
It was not known immediately if police suspect alcohol, drugs or distracted driving as factors in the crash.
