Woman crashes car into Fort Worth home after high-speed chase

A 43-year-old woman crashed her car into a home in Southeast Fort Worth, after leading police on a high speed chase. 

The chase started around 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday. 

Officers initially saw the driver, Nolberta Vargas, speeding in downtown Fort Worth. They attempted a traffic stop, but the woman took off. 

The chase went on to I-30 going east and the woman ended up taking the exit for Wilbarger St. 

She then took a curb too fast and stuck a gate and fence before hitting three vehicles and then crashing into a house. 

There was a family of six sleeping inside the home at the time of the crash. A man who was inside the house says this is not the first time a car has crashed into the house. No one inside the house was hurt. 

The runaway driver was arrested and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Police say they believe she was under the influence of something during the time of the chase and crash.
