COVINGTON, Tenn. — A police chase ended Tuesday with the teen suspect’s car crashing into a Covington home overnight.
Covington Police say a 16-year-old hit one car, crashed through a garage door and pushed another vehicle into a home in the 700 block of Hill Avenue. Water pipes burst and the gas had to be shut off because of a leak.
Katrina Davis lives in the home with her three kids. On Tuesday, a piece of her car was sandwiched between the wall of her utility room and washer and dryer. Her deep freezer was nearly pushed through the other side.
She said she and her kids were on the other side of the house when they heard a loud bang.
“When I came out of my bedroom all I saw was the car in my utility room.”
The suspect was trying to get away from an officer who tried to pull him over when he crashed.
“For somebody outrunning the law just come and crash into my home and then I have no answers. I’m just stuck here with all this COVID and eveything going on to try to find ways to rest my head tonight. I’m still trying to figure out what’s my next plan.”
The teen was charged with vandalism, leaving the scene of a crash, evading arrest, improper lights, no driver’s license and diregarding a stop sign. He was issued a summons and an ankle monitor was put on him by Juvenile Court.
