JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Police in Janesville say a drunk teenager crashed a pick-up truck into a house early Thursday morning.

An officer spotted 17-year-old Jonathan Jimenez driving near West Milwaukee street and South Locust street just after midnight.

The officer tried to stop him, but says Jimenez went through a traffic light and was later found when he crashed the truck into a home at 627 Rockport road.

Jimenez was hurt as well as two of his passengers. A fourth passenger ran away from the scene. The people inside the house weren't hurt, but their home has significant damage.

Jimenez faces tentative charges of OWI causing injury and recklessly endangering safety.
