A homeowner in Pasadena chased down the driver of a truck who slammed into several vehicles parked in his driveway.

It was a chain reaction collision that started when the driver ran over the yard and smashed into several vehicles around 3:30 a.m. on the 1300 block of Chandler Cove and Benton Drive.

One of the cars was pushed into the garage door and into a wall, hurting the family's 4-year-old grandson inside the house while he was sleeping. The family said he suffered some cuts.

The family said they woke up to a loud noise, and when they went outside, they saw the suspect hitting reverse and driving off.

"I heard a loud boom. I thought it was thunder," homeowner Diana DeLeon said.

The husband got into his vehicle, called police and followed the suspect.

"I had to go look for this guy," homeowner Tony DeLeon said.

Police caught up with the driver and arrested him a few blocks away. Officers eventually brought the suspect back to the home, where he said he wanted to speak with Tony.

"He just said he wanted to apologize because he had been going through a lot of family problems," Tony said.

Charges have not been filed, and there's still no word on what caused the driver to lose control.
