Fort Wayne police chase ends with crash into house

FORT WAYNE (AP) — A police chase in Fort Wayne ended when a car crashed into the front porch of a house, bringing the porch's roof crashing down onto the car.

Emergency crews had to free one person who was trapped inside the car. The driver and passenger were taken a hospital with what police spokesman Officer Michael Joyner says are non-life-threatening injuries.

Joyner tells WANE-TV the chase began Monday night when members of the police department's gang unit tried to stop the car for speeding.

He says the car took off but after about five blocks hit a utility pole and then spun trunk-first into the porch of the unoccupied house southeast of the city's downtown. Joyner says a handgun was found inside the car and that the chase remained under investigation.
