Driver sends truck into Chandler home, forces short evacuation

CHANDLER, AZ - A suspect fleeing from police allegedly caused a crash sending a truck into a Chandler home, while also forcing the neighborhood to be evacuated.

A Valley man and woman woke up to what they described as an "explosion" outside of their home Sunday morning. They went outside to find their truck partly inside their garage.

Witnesses said an erratic driver crashed into the neighbor's truck sending it into their garage. To make matters worse, the car was resting on a major gas line that had ruptured.

Police were forced to evacuate about ten homes from the neighborhood. No one was injured.

The suspect tried to flee, but was apprehended by police.

The homeowner, while not happy, said the situation could have been much worse.
