LUBBOCK, Texas -

A car crashed into a home in the 5500 block of Richmond Ave. Friday afternoon after a short police chase. 

Lubbock police received a call to Jake's Sports Cafe at approximately 4:05 p.m. in reference to two males who were believed to be intoxicated and causing problems inside the business.

As officers arrived, the individuals left in a Ford Focus and the driver refused to pull over for officers, and a short pursuit followed. However, due to the time of day and amount of traffic, the pursuit was canceled for the public's safety. 

Officers were then notified of the crash moments later, taking the passenger into custody. The driver was not located. 

UPDATE: After the scene cleared, officers were notified that the suspect's car struck a vehicle during the original pursuit, where the victim pulled into a business parking lot and called for EMS. The driver was taken to the hospital with minor to moderate injuries.
