WAUKESHA — A stolen vehicle chase ends when the fleeing suspect crashes in to a house early Saturday morning, Sept. 22.
According to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, police were pursuing a stolen vehicle but lost sight of it and canceled the pursuit. A little bit later, 911 calls came in for a car crashing into a home near Cleveland and Perkins.
Authorities say the car struck a gas line — forcing people nearby to evacuate. Buses were brought in to provide shelter for those evacuated in the cold weather.
Officials say no one was injured in the area.
The driver, a known male suspect in his 20s, took off before police arrived.
The search and investigation are ongoing.
