    A house on Detroit's east side sustained heavy damage Sunday.

    An SUV slammed into a parked car in the driveway, knocking over a tree, which fell onto the home.

    Donna Cotton, 81, said she's seen a lot, but never anything like this. Now Cotton, who lives at the home, has to figure out what to do next.

    "I heard a big boom and I was telling my family, 'It's so loud. Wake up, because it could be real close,'" Cotton said.

    The noise was "close." The booming sound she heard came from her own home.

    When Cotton went outside, "I seen this car crumbled up on the house," she said.

    A car belonging to Cotton's boyfriend was parked in the driveway.

    "I usually park in the driveway, so it was supposed to be my car tore up," Cotton said.

    As for the driver, she took off.

    "All I understand is there was a woman and a baby in the backseat and after she got herself together a little bit, she pulled that baby out the backseat and went toward the corner," Cotton said.

    The driver left behind shards of glass, a damaged wall and front steps.

    "... It was just so much damage I could see," Cotton said.

    Still, Cotton said she's grateful the wreck didn't have an even worse outcome.
    "It could have been an explosion," Cotton said. "It was between two houses and (there are) a lot of kids on the other side."

    The family of the driver has contacted Cotton, she said.

    Cotton plans to call her insurance company Tuesday.

    A 14-year-old girl was reunited with her family Sunday after she showed up at the Dearborn Heights Police Department about 7:30 p.m., deputies said.

    Sydney Rhea Keith wasn't hurt, said Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone, who added that the investigation into Sydney's disappearance is ongoing.

    Dearborn Heights police, the Michigan State Police and the FBI assisted.

    Previously, police said, they were worried Sydney left home possibly to meet a man she had been talking to online.

    Officers said Sydney got into an unknown vehicle at 7 St. Andrews Court in Temperance and was seen talking to a heavyset white woman in the driver's seat.

    Bank footage from an ATM at a bank in Toledo, Ohio, showed Sydney withdrawing $280, police said.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Jeff Hooper at 734-224-7316.

    A 2-year-old girl who suffered a fractured skull Wednesday when she was hit by a brick thrown through a car window is now home.

    Police said a man ran in front of the car at 10:10 p.m. at the I-75 Service Drive and Forest. He then ran back to the sidewalk, picked up a brick and threw it at the car, police said.

    The brick went through the rear passenger window and hit Robyn Rivers in the head. She was taken to Children's Hospital in critical condition, police said.

    After spending several days in the hospital recovering, Robyn was able to return home Sunday.

    Her mother, Barbara Williams, said it's been traumatic and has taken a toll on both her and her daughter.

    "She's still got some opening up to do because she's not the same," Williams said. "That's upsetting because that's different."

    She said she is stressed and is now watching everything her daughter does.

    Williams is also uneasy because the man who threw the brick is still on the run.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detroit police.

    Donations can be made to Robyn's family here.

    Miguel Gonzalez took a perfect game into the seventh inning, Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 on Sunday.

    Melky Cabrera and Matt Davidson also connected, helping the White Sox take three of four in the series. David Robertson got two outs for his seventh save.

    Gonzalez (4-5) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings while snapping a five-start losing streak. The right-hander struck out six and walked none.

    Gonzalez retired his first 18 batters before Andrew Romine led off the seventh with a hard one-hop liner to shortstop Tim Anderson, who couldn't field the ball cleanly and was originally charged with an error. Alex Avila followed with a single into to right field, and Romine's ball was later changed to a hit.

    The streak of 18 straight to begin the game was the longest by a Chicago starter since Chris Sale retired the first 19 against the Los Angeles Angels on May 12, 2013. Mike Trout broke up that gem.

    Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann (4-4) allowed seven runs and eight hits in five innings, raising his ERA to 6.47. He has allowed more than three runs in eight of his 10 starts this season.

    The White Sox grabbed the lead on Willy Garcia's RBI triple in the third. Garcia also scored on the play because shortstop Jose Iglesias' wild relay to third base bounced into the photographers' well near the dugout.

    One out later, Cabrera tacked on a solo homer to right.

    Chicago then stretched the lead to 5-0 in the fourth following a 30-minute rain delay in the top of the inning. Davidson led off with a homer to center and Narvaez drove in Yolmer Sanchez from third with a bloop single over a drawn-in infield.

    Frazier then made it 7-0 with his sixth homer in the fifth.

    TRAINER'S ROOM

    White Sox: RHP James Shields (strained right lat) has been sidelined since late April and there's still no timetable for him making a rehab start. "He's continued to throw with really positive results," manager Rick Renteria said.

    PRESLEY IN, COLLINS OUT

    Before the game, the Tigers promoted outfielder Alex Presley from Triple-A Toledo and designed outfielder Tyler Collins for assignment. Presley started in center field and went 1 for 3. The 26-year-old Collins hit .200 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 130 at-bats this season.

    "We were hoping he came out of the funk," manager Brad Ausmus said, "but at some point, you reach a point where you can't wait anymore."

    UP NEXT

    Tigers: The road trip continues Monday night in Kansas City with LHP Daniel Norris (2-3, 4.38 ERA) facing Royals RHP Jason Hammel (1-6, 5.98 ERA) in the opener of a three-game series.

    White Sox: LHP David Holmberg (0-0, 0.87 ERA) makes his first start following eight relief appearances when the White Sox begin a three-game home series against Boston on Monday. LHP David Price makes his 2017 debut for the Red Sox after missing the first part of the season with an elbow injury.

    Muslims in Portland, Oregon, thanked the community for its support and said they were raising money for the families of two men who were killed and others involved when someone targeted young women with an anti-Muslim rant on a light-rail train.

    "I am very thankful as a Muslim, I am very thankful as a Portlander ... that we stand together here as one," Muhammad A. Najieb, an imam at the Muslim Community Center, said Saturday.

    He said the two young women "could have been the victims, but three heroes jumped in and supported them."

    Najieb said a fundraising page launched by his group for the families of the dead men, a surviving victim and the two young women had raised $50,000 in its first hours.

    Police said they'll examine what appears to be the extremist ideology of suspect Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, who is accused of killing the two men Friday. Christian's social media postings indicate an affinity for Nazis and political violence.

    The attack occurred on the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of the year for Muslims.

    Christian was being held on suspicion of aggravated murder, attempted murder, intimidation and being a felon in possession of a weapon. He was arrested a short time after the attack when he was confronted by other men.

    Alvin Hall said had just stepped off the train on Friday when he saw a man bleeding from the neck, KATU-TV reported. Hall said his instincts kicked in and he went after the suspect.

    "My first process was, 'What can I do? Where did he go?' and someone said, 'He ran over to the bridge,'" Hall said. "So I just took up running from the bridge up the stairs."

    He said he met Chase Robinson and Larry Blackwell, and the three men confronted the suspect, who turned on them with a knife.

    "The minute he saw me he started coming after me. He's like, 'You want some of me, you're a snitch, come on after me, you want some of this?' and started chasing me," Hall said.

    Soon, police arrived and took the suspect into custody.

    Christian will make his first court appearance in the case Tuesday, and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney. No one answered the phone at his Portland home.

    Police identified the men killed as Ricky John Best, 53, of Happy Valley, Oregon, and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, 23, of Portland.

    Police say Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, of Portland was also stabbed and is in serious condition at a Portland hospital. Police say his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

    Mayor Ted Wheeler said Best was an Army veteran and a city employee.

    Police said one of the two young women on the train was wearing a hijab. The assailant was ranting on many topics, using "hate speech or biased language," police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.

    The FBI said it's too early to say whether the slayings qualify as a federal hate crime. However, Christian faces intimidation charges, the state equivalent of a hate crime.

    The Portland Mercury, one of the city's alternative weeklies, posted an article on its website saying Christian showed up at a free speech march in late April with a baseball bat to confront protesters and the bat was confiscated by police.

    The article included video clips of a man wearing a metal chain around his neck and draped in an American flag shouting "I'm a nihilist! This is my safe place!" as protesters crowd around him. The Oregonian/OregonLive also had video from the April 29 march showing Christian.

    Simpson confirmed the man in the videos was Christian.

    On what appears to be Christian's Facebook page he showed sympathy for Nazis and Timothy McVeigh, who bombed a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995.
