Dad: Baby with 1 scratch after SUV lands atop crib

The father of a baby girl says the Kentucky infant survived with just a scratch on the head after a sport utility vehicle crashed into her room and came to rest atop her crib.

Kenneth Enright told Lexington station WKYT-TV that the SUV barely missed his 10-month-old daughter when it crashed Monday morning into his home in Kirksville, central Kentucky.

Enright says the Toyota 4-Runner tore a gaping hole through a wall and he quickly ran into the room where he heard his daughter crying. He says he found the infant just inches away from the SUV's front tire and adds she had her hands up "like, get me out of here."

Authorities say it appeared the driver lost control, adding the crash is considered an accident.
