PAYETTE, Idaho -- A high speed chase ends with a car coming to rest on a house in Payette Tuesday afternoon.

Payette Police say Gerardo Gonzalez Cruz was spotted driving recklessly shortly after 5 p.m. After police tried to pull him over he sped off driving along North 6th Street, running cars off the road and reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The chase came to an end when Gonzalez over turned the car he was driving after trying to make a turn onto 15th Avenue.  He suffered serious injuries and is currently in the hospital.

Police are investigating why Gonzalez fled, but they know he had been recently released from Malheur County Jail in Oregon.
