SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A police chase ended with a car inside a house Thursday afternoon.
The car ended up in a house at the corner of G Street and 21st Street, where Ashley Smith lives with her two sons. While Smith, her sons, and her boyfriend were home at the time of the crash, they were not injured.
"Well, I was just sitting in my room, and all of a sudden, everything just came sliding at me," Smith said. "It felt like a helicopter landed on top of my house."
It all started when Springfield Police tried to pull over a white sedan that sped out of the Paramount Center parking lot on Main Street. An official at the scene said he was driving erratically and refused to pull over. The driver tried to make a left on G Street but lost control and slammed into the house.
The driver tried to run, but police said they arrested him a few houses down. The vehicle's passenger tried to get away as well, but police stopped him.
Smith said the impact caused the foundation of her house to move and knock over things throughout her home.
"It's pretty crazy. I didn't expect anybody to ever hit my house that hard," Smith said. "But I always expected my house to get hit because of where I live and everybody always runs the stop sign."
Police are still investigating the crash and have not yet released the name of the driver.
