VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Three people, including a child, have been taken to area hospitals after a truck crashed into a house in the 400 block of Sedgewick Court Wednesday afternoon.

Crews with the Virginia Beach Fire Department, along with members from the Virginia Beach Police Department and Virginia Beach EMS, responded to the scene just after 3 p.m. Fire units arrived to find the truck partially in the house.

Officials say the crash caused a small fire, which crews put out quickly.

The three victims were taken to a local hospital for treatment for unknown injuries.

VBEMS personnel took the child to the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. There has been no update on the child's condition.

A neighbor shared pictures of the aftermath of the incident with News 3. It looks like other vehicles were damaged.

The man told us he heard a "boom" and ran across the street. His neighbor yelled, "My girls are inside the house."

He says the child, who he said is a little girl, was pinned in between the car and a playpen. He doesn’t believe the driver knows the family.

The man says the community came together to help the driver, who reportedly had a seizure.

Virginia Beach Police are still investigating the crash.
