VISTA, Calif. — A San Diego County child who was left paralyzed by a drunken driver has a new home after well-wishers chipped in $100,000 for the down payment.

The North County Times says a five-bedroom home in Vista was presented Wednesday to the family of Izaiah Wallis.

Izaiah, who's now 3, was in a stroller pushed by his grandfather when a drunk, unlicensed 17-year-old hit them in 2010.

The boy was paralyzed from the chest down and needs a ventilator. His father quit his job to take care of his son full time.

The nonprofit group Passion 4 Kids helped raise a $100,000 down payment on the $258,000 home. Dozens of companies then worked to remodel the rat- and trash-infested residence.

The parents say they love it.
