Police seek suspects after stolen truck plows through yard at 22nd St. and Ave. T

Stacey Merasty said she heard a thump and a boom.

She looked out her side door at Avenue T and 22nd Street and couldn't believe the carnage in her yard.

"Oh my God, what a close call, I thought, wow, right close to my house. Right outside my house, on my step," she said.

Police say the half-ton truck, which was reported stolen, almost hit a patrol car after not stopping at a stop sign at Forrester Road and Fairmont Drive at around 5:20 CST.

Officers drove after the vehicle before abandoning the pursuit for safety reasons.

Eventually, the truck veered off 22nd Street at Avenue T and cut across Merasty's yard. It took out street signs and a power pole before bouncing off her concrete steps.

It ended up back on Avenue T and continued down the street for about another 30 metres before stopping.

There were no reported injuries.

The occupants of the truck are still at large. Police found a mask and replica handgun inside the vehicle.

Police said the truck was reported stolen after a home break-in.
