Burglary suspects crash into Broken Arrow home during police chase
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- A woman is lucky to be alive after a car crashed into her Broken Arrow home around 9 a.m. Thursday following a police chase.
The driver lost control of the vehicle while trying to run from police after a burglary.
“The first things she said was there was a car in the house," said homeowner Randie Doshier.
His wife, Holly, was inside their home feet away from where a car stopped.
“They took that tree entirely out, and it was very loud," said Holly Doshier.
The couple has lived off Kenosha and Kenwood for more than 30 years.
“I don’t know how well I'm going to sleep tonight, but I'm very thankful; it could have been a lot worse," said Doshier.
Police say the car was connected to an earlier burglary, but the suspects didn’t get far. The male and female suspects in the car led officers on a chase before rolling their vehicle near 1st and Kenosha.
“As they were coming out the door to leave, the homeowners interrupted the burglary," said Sergeant Keith Cook.
Police tell us the two people inside the vehicle were taken to the hospital; their injuries are unknown. One of the suspects was ejected from the car, and firefighters had to extract the other.
They’re facing charges of burglary and eluding officers.
The suspect’s names have not yet been released.
Police say they weren’t able to steal anything during the attempted burglary.
