One person was arrested and another was sent to the hospital after an altercation between a father and son ended with a truck slamming into a west Birmingham house and an officer accidentally discharging his weapon.

Police arrived at a home located at 4825 Avenue V just before 10 p.m. and found the feuding family members still inside the wrecked truck. Officers proceeded to shout verbal demands at the men to exit the vehicle and while doing so, one of the officers accidentally fired his weapon.

Shortly after the police mishap, one person was seen being loaded into an ambulance while another person was taken into custody. It is unknown at this time who was transported to the hospital and who was arrested.

ABC 33/40 will continue to follow this story and provide updates as more information is made available.
