There is a report of a van that crashed into a home in Park Layne early Friday morning.

Initial reports around 3:30 a.m. indicated the van hit the home in the 1600 block of Lambers Drive, and the suspects — who had previously been involved in a slow pursuit with a deputy — got out of the van and ran.

According to dispatch, the deputy was chasing the van at a slow speed and lost it in the pursuit. The deputy later found the van crashed into the home.

We have a crew heading to the scene, and we will update this story as new information becomes available.
