ADELANTO, Calif. -- A bounce house with a 9-year-old child inside was blown onto Highway 395 in Adelanto, striking a vehicle along the highway and leaving the child with minor injuries Saturday afternoon, according to the Victor Valley Sheriff's Department.

KSWB partner KTLA reported that the child fell out of the bounce house once it rolled onto the highway, according to authorities. While on the highway, it struck a vehicle traveling southbound.

Sheriff's deputies responded to an area of the highway near Bartlett Avenue at about 3:12 p.m., officials said. The bounce house had been blown away from a home near the 18200 block of Delicious Avenue by strong winds.

Once authorities arrived, the child was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The driver of the vehicle did not suffer any injuries but was "shook up from the ordeal," sheriff's deputies said in a news release.

No further information was released by law enforcement.
