CLEARWATER, Fla. — A driver crashed a vehicle into a home in Clearwater on Thursday night.

The crash happened around 10:20 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of Kings Highway and Sunset Point Road.

Langs was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. No one in the home was hurt.

Police say Langs told them he did not see the officer following him until he noticed another deputy just before the intersection where he crashed into the home.

Lang was charged with Possession of Crack Cocaine, Felony Driving With Suspended License and Reckless Driving.
