CARLISLE, Pa.–Police have charged a man who crashed into three homes and four vehicles during a police chase in Carlisle late Monday night.

Favian Padilla, 28, of Carlisle, is charged with DUI, fleeing or attempting to elude police, recklessly endangering another person, accidents involving damage to attended vehicle or property and numerous traffic violations.

Officers were initially dispatched to the intersection of West North and North College Street in Carlisle for reports of debris in the road. While investigating the incident–officers spotted Padilla driving a vehicle that had significant damage to it, according to the criminal complaint. Thinking it may have been involved in an unreported crash that left the debris in the road–officers attempted to stop Padilla–but he took off.

A police chase ensued until Padilla lost control of his vehicle along the 400 block of North West Street and hit a utility pole, three homes and four vehicles.

Padilla was taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

No one in the homes or parked vehicles that Padilla hit were injured, according to court documents.
