A truck came crashing into a family's bedroom overnight, just feet away from where children were going to sleep.It happened on Nunn near Dixie in southeast Houston. Police are still looking for the three men who caused the damage.

The homeowner says it was just before 10pm Sunday when the driver of a dark colored pickup crashed into her bedroom.

"I was putting my babies to bed and I heard a loud explosion when I ran," said homeowner Betty Rice. "I ran to the front of the house. My babies were running and screaming and when got to the front of the house, I saw a truck pulling out my house."

The homeowner says there were three men in the truck. Two of them jumped out and started running. The driver then backed the truck out of the house and took off. She did give chase, but was unable to catch up with the men.

Police do believe the driver was speeding. All they have to go on is that the pickup is dark in color and has heavy damage to front end.
