Children were having a slumber party after the Gasparilla Children’s Parade when an SUV slammed through the home at 7910 N Orleans Ave. early Sunday, seriously injuring a 9-year-old.

TAMPA — The 9-year-old boy who was injured when an SUV slammed into a home early Sunday was listed in good condition Monday at St. Joseph's Hospital.

Joseph "Joey" Vanhouse was asleep on a sectional couch in the living room at 7910 N Orleans Ave. when a 2002 Ford sport utility vehicle heading west on Hollywood Street ran a stop sign at Orleans, hit a parked Isuzu in the front of the house and rammed into the house, hitting the couch where Joey was asleep.

He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. Police said he suffered a skull fracture. A hospital spokeswoman said Monday he was listed in good condition.

Police identified the driver as 17-year-old Guillermo Rosales, of 13931 Henson Circle in Tampa. Officers said Rosales was speeding, but no charges have been filed, pending toxicology results.
