COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A 6-year-old central Ohio girl escaped serious injury when a car came crashing into her bedroom as she slept.

It happened just after midnight Monday in north Columbus when the car lost control and hit the house, shoving in the wall in and knocking the girl out of her bed.

Columbus police said the crash happened after the driver of the car fled officers. The driver, who likely will be charged with drunken driving, was taken to a hospital with a broken leg.

No names have been released.
