Police Chase Ends In Ocean City Home

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- When Donald Quakenbush was woken up at 2:40 in the morning Friday, he was in for a big surprise.

"We heard a loud bang explosion and all of a sudden there was a truck sitting in the side yard and if it wasn't for the Delmarva Power box there'd be a lot of dead people in this house," he said.

According to Ocean City Police, the truck was driven by Alex Little of Dover. Police say they observed Little speeding and when they attempted a traffic stop, Little ignored police and took them on a chase southbound on Philadelphia Avenue. The chase ended when Little missed a turn onto Division Street and ended up in Quakenbush's front yard.

Little's pick-up truck his a power box and transformer which were then pushed into the side of the home.

"I've got foot burn from as fast I jumped out of that bed from the sheet, ya know the sheet burned my foot I was so fast out of the bed and I was running out the door because I thought that thing was going to catch on fire," he said.

Even though Quakenbush and his home are shaken, he is thankful the power equipment helped block the truck.

"I will happily pay Delmarva Power for my electric bill for saving our lives with that big piece of thing that's at the bottom of our steps," he said. "I will never complain about our electric bill again."

Alex Little has been charged with two counts of driving under the influence, eluding police and reckless driving, among other charges.
