It happened around 12:15am Sunday at a house on Pine Knot at Darby Way.
Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office investigators say the driver of a sports utility vehicle somehow lost control while going south on Pine Knot. The SUV skidded onto a yard and slammed into the garage and a large tree.
The crash sheared off a gas main that was leading into the house, causing gas to spew.
Several homes were evacuated until hazmat crews arrived.
The driver was transported to an area hospital. At last check, he was stable.
No one else was in the SUV, and no one inside the house was injured.
The crash remains under investigation.
