Akron police attempt to pull speeding SUV over but it crashes into house on Stanton Ave. instead

AKRON, Ohio - Akron police tried to stop a speeding SUV just after midnight but it took a house to do that instead.

The driver was westbound on Stanton Avenue when police say it passed them at high speeds. The officers turned on their lights to pursue the SUV but it swerved into a yard and hit a house.

The home only suffered minor exterior damage. Police weren't sure if anyone lived at the house, saying, at the very least, no one was home when the crash happened.

Police are still trying to determine whether the SUV was stolen. The driver claimed it was loaned to him for the night. 

The driver was treated by EMS crews at the scene and then taken into custody.
