A father and his child were injured Thursday after a pickup truck crashed into an apartment in the southeast valley, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

At about 4 p.m., police responded to the crash at Mountain Vista Apartments, 3950 S. Mountain Vista St., Metro spokesman Lt. Jay Rivera said. At least two people were injured, including a father and his son.

It is unknown whether the two were inside the apartment or inside the truck, Rivera said.

Both were taken to local hospitals with survivable injuries, Metro said. The father was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. Metro could not confirm which hospital is treating the child.

The driver was hospitalized as a precaution, Lt. Peter Kisfalvi said. She was suspected of driving under the influence and later arrested.

The Red Cross of Southern Nevada announced it was assisting five adults and a child after the crash.
