Three people are facing criminal charges following a high-speed chase that ended with a car crashing into a house. The vehicle in question had a baby inside.
According to KRIS-TV, police were called in connection with suspected drug use outside a convenience store on U.S. Highway 77 and E. 4th Street.
As police arrived at the scene of the report, an SUV took off at a high rate of speed. The SUV attempted to evade police that was in pursuit, but lost control in the 200 block of E. 4th Street and crashed into a house.
Four people were inside the vehicle, including an 11-month-old baby. The baby was transported to the hospital for treatment. The three other occupants were arrested.
Police found drug paraphernalia and narcotics inside the SUV. They said all three of the people arrested will be facing multiple felony charges, including evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance, and endangering a child.
