"Teens Crash Car Into House During High Speed Chase"

WOAI reports on another chapter in the vehicle-domicile conflicts:

Three teenagers are facing aggravated robbery charges, accused of carjacking a man on the North Side and leading officers on a chase that lasted nearly 40 minutes.

Officers said the teens stole a Toyota Prius from a man on the 100 block of Sage Bluff Circle, near Blanco and Loop 1604 around 1:00 a.m. Thursday.

Minutes later, police noticed the Prius speeding down Loop 1604, and they began chasing the suspects. At one point, the pursuit reached speeds of over 100 miles an hour.


Finally, the teen driving the Prius lost control and slammed into a house on Skila Street, in southwest Bexar County. Officers said the three teens took off running, but they were quickly caught and arrested.

The good piece of news is that no one was hurt in this skirmish.
