Police seek suspects who crashed car into Tampa house and fled

TAMPA — A driver ran a stop sign early Monday morning, crashed into a house and fled with the passenger, police said.

At about 2:40 a.m. a black 1994 Honda Civic was eastbound on McBerry Street. The driver ran a stop sign at N 37th Street, veered right and crashed into a corner of the concrete block house at 3702 E McBerry St., police said.

Reginald Mike Sr. was in his living room when the crash moved the chair he was sitting in. He was taken to a local hospital for minor back injuries.

The two suspects were seen heading north on N 37th St.

One suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build and light complexion. He has short black hair and was about 25- to 30-years-old. He wore a light-colored T-shirt and blue jeans.

A Hispanic woman with him was described as being 5 feet 4 inches tall with a medium build, and about the same age as the male suspect. She wore a white sweater, gray sweatpants and dark hair in a ponytail.
