Surveillance doorbell video shows the driver, who ran away on foot, crash into the home, damaging two brand new cars and another truck.

ATASCOCITA, Texas (KTRK) -- The driver accused of crashing into an Atascocita family's home and then running off has been arrested, Harris County Precinct 4 said Wednesday morning.

A truck crashed into their garage on Polo Meadow Drive near Angler Drive during a chase with deputies.

No one inside the house was hurt. Thankfully, the truck didn't slam into a bedroom or the living room.

Video from the aftermath of the crash shows the back of the truck sticking up in the air. Harris County Precinct 4 says the driver got away on foot after the crash.

But around 9:40 a.m., officials said the person had been found and is now in custody.

The crash also damaged two brand new cars in the driveway and another truck.

Precinct 4 deputies have not said what the driver was running from or how long the chase lasted.

According to the Atascocita Fire Department, the driver hit the curb along the curve of the street and lost control.

A neighbor across the street caught the crash on surveillance doorbell video. You can see the crash footage in the video player above.

"This is incredible. Two brand new 2020 cars, his truck and another vehicle...a four-vehicle pileup in the driveway," homeowner Allen Carroll, who is currently renting the home to another family, said.
