The pursuit ended at a house in the 15600 block of Pebble Lake Drive near Meadow Village Drive in northwest Harris County.

The deputy began chasing the truck but slowed down at a red light and eventually caught up to the driver when he saw people standing outside where the truck had crashed into a home’s garage.
