Driver barrels into Glendale home after hit-and-run crash: police

A car crashed into a Glendale home after being involved in a hit-and-run crash, according to police.

Glendale officers said the incident started near Westgate after a car hit another vehicle and ran away on April 30.

The car that was hit started chasing after the suspect's car, which is when police were contacted.

Police say the pursuit continued until the suspect driver lost control in a neighborhood near 75th Avenue and Bethany Home Road and crashed into the garage of a nearby home.

The city's fire department had originally reported that the car had crashed into the home after police attempted to make a traffic stop, but police said officers did not arrive until after the crash.

Police say the car caught fire while in the garage, but firefighters were able to put it out before to spread to the house.

The vehicle also pushed an SUV parked inside the garage into the home, damaging the residence. The homeowner was inside the home during the collision and was displaced because of the damage.

No injuries were reported. The driver was arrested and booked into jail on misdemeanor charges.
