Teen to face charges after crashing car into Highlands Ranch home

Driver, teen passengers fled party scene

A police chase in Highlands Ranch ended with a teenage driver crashing her vehicle into a home Friday night.

Around 10:45 p.m. Sept. 23, Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a noise complaint in the 9000 block of Miners Place when they heard shots fired in the area and saw a white Mercedes SUV speeding away, according to a DCSO news release. 

When a deputy attempted to pull over the Mercedes, the driver turned into a neighborhood and escaped sight of police. DCSO found the car crashed into a house in the 8600 block of Forrest Drive.

The driver, 16, and a passenger were transported to a local hospital with injuries. A second passenger was not injured. Residents were in the home, but they were not injured.

The driver faces potential charges of vehicular eluding, driving under the influence and reckless driving. DCSO determined none of the juveniles in the car had fired the shots heard on Miners Place, but they were at the scene when it occurred, the release says. 

The investigation into the shots fired on Miners Place is ongoing.
