They were rammed once more and that's when they went off road, through a fence and into a house.

The victim in this case however, isn't blameless either.

West Valley City Police Lt. Jeff Conger said, "The victim’s vehicle actually had stolen plates on it, so the victim, he's going to get charged also, so it's kind of an interesting case to say the least."

Police found that while the car is registered to him, it had stolen plates.

“The vehicle itself is not stolen, it's registered to one of the victims and the main suspect on the other case, we're still trying to find out where he's at and looking for him,” Lt. Conger said.

Police said they do have an idea of who the driver is and if they find him, he will be facing felony charges.

Luckily nobody inside the home was hurt but the two victims had minor injuries.
