A vehicle slammed into a house Wednesday night in Clinton, Massachusetts after a driver lost control during a short police pursuit, according to local authorities.

A police officer in Sterling tried to pull over a vehicle, which turned into a chase, police said in a news release. After a short pursuit, the driver lost control and hit a home on Sterling Street, according to the release.

Video of the scene shows the bottom floor of the home completely in shambles. The officer or residents weren't hurt.

Police have identified the driver as Mitchell Gary Brown, 26, of Leominster, who now faces a series of charges, including negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for the police, operating with a suspended license, operating with a revoked registration and other traffic related charges.

Brown was taken to Clinton Hospital to be treated for minor injuries following the crash, before being booked at the Sterling Police Station. He was held on a $5,000 cash bail and was taken to the Worcester County House of Corrections overnight, according to police. He is expected to be taken to Clinton Court Thursday for an arraignment on the charges he faces.
