Cushing Police search for suspects after stolen car hits house

CUSHING, Okla. – “Oh i thought they were just remodeling because the whole front was gone” Cushing resident Joyce Richardson said.

The Cushing Police Department is searching for two suspects seen allegedly running from the scene of a stolen car crashing into a house early Saturday morning.

A witness at the scene says they observed the car going at a high rate of speed when it veered from the road and struck the house.

“Yeah I`ve nearly hit somebody there before because they don`t stop” Richardson said.

Neighbors say the man who was home at the time, just recently moved in.

“He said that he was asleep and he didn`t know what was going on he said he thought he was gonna come out here and find some dead bodies” neighbor Matt Coventon said.

Police say the car was stolen from Oilton.

“Well kids these days think its fun to steal cars” Coventon said.

“I don`t let my grandkids play out here we have a fenced back yard so they stay in the back” Richardson added.

The homeowner tells neighbors, he’s just glad to be alive.

“He said he`s glad he wasn`t sleeping in that room it would`ve killed him for sure” Coventon said.

The witness says they then saw two suspects, one wearing a white hoodie and one wearing a black hoodie, exit the car and take off running.
