LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) — Colorado authorities said they have no idea what led a man to drive his pickup truck into three mobile homes and said a 30-year-old man was acting like a human “pinball machine.” The 30-year-old had two girls in his 1990 Chevy Astro Sunday when police said he rammed the car into units at the Banecks Mobile Home Park in Lafayette, in Denver’s northern suburbs.

The man also hit a chain link fence, a concrete culvert and a parked pickup truck. Police said he appeared to be hitting things deliberately.

The suspect fled police and his wrecked van on foot and attempted to elude police by jumping in a Dumpster. He was discovered and now faces several charges. The girls, aged 8 and 10, appear to be OK.
