EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville Police are looking for a suspect who they say ran off during a chase Wednesday morning.

It started around 10:15 a.m.

Police say the driver of a stolen, black SUV would not stop for them and crashed into a red truck and also a house near Gilbert and Jefferson.

They say he then ran from the scene.

The owner of the car that was hit caught a glimpse of the suspect.

”Well, I’m going to tell you what, you ever you watch movies right? You hear the big crashes and the screeches and stuff like that, and that’s what it was. I heard a brief tire screech like he may have thought about hitting the brakes. And then he just, I heard two hits but they were so close together. Real quick, boom boom, and then by that time it was over,” said Tyler Nance.

Bosse High School was on what school officials call a “building secure” because of the chase in the area.

The homeowner told us what it was like for her when the crash happened:
