A homeowner now needs some renovations after a police chase came to a crashing end inside the Montrose area home. An officer spotted an SUV with expired tags on Vassar overnight. The driver turned off the vehicle's lights and sped off.

The SUV crashed into the side of a house at the intersection of Vassar and Woodhead. The residents were asleep and were rattled by the noise.

"We just heard this loud bang and we started screaming," said homeowner Shanna Elizondo.

The family inside was not hurt. The suspect was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in unknown condition.
