A driver crashed a stolen Jeep into a house in South Dallas.

A woman left the Jeep running while she got out to talk to a family member just before 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The thief seized the opportunity and drove the vehicle about two miles before crashing into a house near the corner of Bradshaw and Elsie Faye Higgins streets.

The car thief is being treated for minor injuries. He’ll likely face charges for the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle when released from the hospital.

No one inside the house was hurt.
