A car attempting to flee a hit and run caught on fire after crashing into a Glendale residence on Saturday, April 30.

Near the Westgate Entertainment District, a vehicle struck another vehicle and promptly attempted to leave the scene. The victim, in the vehicle, then pursued the suspect’s car as police had been contacted.

While the victim vehicle was chasing the suspect vehicle, the suspect vehicle lost control and crashed into the garage of a residence near the area of 7800 W. Solano Drive.

The impact pushed the resident’s car into the house and caused the suspect vehicle to catch on fire. The home was occupied by one resident, but no injuries were reported.

After arrival, crews quickly extinguished the fire and located the elderly resident who was inside.

The driver of the suspect vehicle was arrested and booked under misdemeanor charges.
