    Three Arlington kids got a rude awakening Friday morning when a driver slammed a truck through the wall of an Arlington house, missing the boys sleeping inside by just inches.

    The truck crashed through the bedroom wall of a home on the 300 block of Harriett Street in Arlington at about 2:15 a.m. Friday.

    The pickup nearly struck three children that were sleeping on a bunk bed.

    The mother of the three boys said her 5-year-old twins were sleeping on the bottom bunk while her 8-year-old son was sleeping on the bunk above.

    Following the crash, the bed collapsed and caused the older boy to have a minor injury to his back.

    Arlington police dispatchers said the driver of the truck fled the scene after the crash.

    Emergency crews removed the truck from the home early Friday.
