Chase ends after pickup truck plows into home near South Sacramento, police say

One person in the home was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Police say a chase came to an abrupt end after a suspect drove into a home near South Sacramento.

The Sacramento Police Department said the incident happened after officers tried to do a traffic stop on a suspect with felony warrants. The suspect stopped briefly before taking off and led officers on a chase that ended with the truck crashing into a home. 

One person in the home was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was detained and will be booked for outstanding warrants and charges related to the chase. 

"We saw a lady, some lady, got off the truck and started running, but then the cops pulled out their guns and she came back," said Liz Arreola, a neighbor in the area. 

Before the truck can be removed from the home, PG&E has to dig underground to the gas main to make sure nothing is damaged further.

Neighbors described hearing a loud boom followed by a cloud of dust rising into the air. They said there was so much dust that they didn't realize the truck crashed into the home until everything cleared. 

A woman, screaming for help from one of the windows, said her husband was trapped inside before she jumped out of the window. First responders were ultimately able to rescue him. Police said he was in stable condition.
