BISHOP, Texas — Three people are facing serious charges after they allegedly led police on a brief high-speed chase.

When officers arrived, the SUV took off from the scene at a high rate of speed according to police.

After trying to allegedly evade officers, the vehicle lost control and slammed into a home in the 200 block of E. 4th Street.

The infant was checked out by medics and transported to a hospital for further medical treatment. Investigators added no one didn't suffer any life threatening injuries.

Bishop police officers said they found drug paraphernalia and narcotics inside the SUV.

Police said all three people will be facing multiple felony charges, to include evading arrest (motor vehicle), possession of a controlled substance and endangering a child.
