A driver crashed into a home in North Minneapolis early Saturday morning after a brief police chase.
According to the Minneapolis Police Department, around 1 a.m. officers tried to stop a driver who had crossed over the center line near 22nd and Lyndale avenues. The driver fled, and police pursued.
Officers lost the vehicle, though, and "terminated the pursuit for public safety reasons."
Five minutes later, police received word a vehicle had hit a house on the 2300 block of Irving Avenue North. The driver had crashed into a porch, causing substantial damage.

The officers involved said this was the same driver and vehicle they chased earlier. The driver was taken into custody. Alcohol is believed to be a factor, police said.
No one was in the home at the time of the crash.
