Wanted man crashes SUV into Elliott home during police chase
State police are looking for a Brackenridge man who they said he fled a traffic stop and crashed into a house and garage in Pittsburgh's Elliott neighborhood early Tuesday.
Troopers from the Pittsburgh barracks tried to stop an SUV on Steuben Street shortly before 2 a.m. because there was an arrest warrant for its owner, but the driver took off. The SUV ran off Danley Road, striking a house's porch before crashing into a detached garage.
State police said the driver, whom they identified as Dustin Stobert, 33, fled the crash on foot, running down a hillside to evade capture. They will file fleeing and eluding charges against Stobert, which will be added to his warrant from Lower Burrell police on a charge of receiving stolen property, according to a police press release and court records.
Two boys were having a sleepover in the bedroom closest to the crash, the force of which pushed the garage off its foundation, according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV. Pittsburgh authorities condemned the garage.
