An overnight police chase ends in the front yard of a Tulsa family.
The chase happened around midnight when an officer spotted a stolen vehicle taken from the 31st and Peoria area.
It ended in a neighborhood near I-244 and Memorial... but not until several vehicles were smashed... including a police car.
Sgt Bret Bailey - Tulsa Police Department: The vehicle accelerated away from him and was making the turn at about 78-hundred east Independence, missed the turn, ended up in the yard of the house hitting a car, and then into the police unit. The driver threw it in reverse and accelerated back into the police unit.
The suspects did pull away and ran into a tree. They jumped out and one was arrested. Police are still looking for a second suspect. No one was hurt.
