A driver could be charged for leading police on a short chase overnight.

Officers say he didn't get very far. The driver crashed into a tree at Welch and Grant near downtown -- that's just three blocks away from where the chase started.

Police say an officer tried pulling over the van because it only had one headlight, but the driver took off. He lost control and crashed.

A passenger was not hurt. The driver was taken to Ben Taub Hospital with minor injuries.

The van was not stolen.
