HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A motorist suspected of stealing a car has been hospitalized after a police chase Thursday evening.

Reports indicate that the suspect was behind the wheel of what police believe was a stolen car and crashed through a fence into the backyard of a home in northeast Houston.

The incident which began around 11:30 p.m. Thursday night, began with an officer attempted to pull over a motorist. The motorist who was in a silver Honda on Tidwell, kept going instead of stopping. He drove into a neighborhood, missed a curve, and crashed through a fence; subsequently, he landed in the backyard of a house.

The driver was taken into custody at the scene and then later taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Additional reports indicate that he faces charges of evading arrest and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Both are felony offenses.
