OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Five people have been injured and 40 have been displaced after a pickup truck crashed into the first floor of a two-story apartment building in Oxnard.

The Ventura County Star reports (https://bit.ly/2eRxKMf ) that a 2-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy were found under the pickup truck after it crashed through the wall of the apartment Monday. The driver of the truck was also injured. As of Monday night the girl was in critical but stable condition and the boy had been airlifted to another hospital.

Two other residents suffered minor injuries.

In all, 40 residents were displaced from eight apartments in the building. Two of the apartments were damaged by the pickup and the other six were deemed temporarily uninhabitable due to an active gas leak.
