An Ephrata couple is facing endangerment charges after their child was injured in a fall from a moving pickup truck, according to police.

Stacey Camacho, 42, and Willie Camacho, 50, were each charged Monday with reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Northern Lancaster County Regional police said the Camacho's 18-month-old child and three males suffered head injuries when they fell from the moving truck Saturday afternoon at the Starlite Camping Resort in the 1500 block of Furnace Hills Drive in Stevens.

The injured passengers were transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Lancaster General Hospital for medical evaluations, and all were later released after treatment.

Police said alcohol was a factor in the incident and Stacey Camacho was driving the truck when the passengers fell off the tailgate.

The child is currently in the care of a family relative.
