MARION, Ohio -

Marion Police are investigating an overnight pursuit, where they say the suspect was possibly drunk and drove through a house.

According to Marion Police, just before midnight Saturday, they received a call of a stolen 1996 Teal colored Buick Regal, from a bar on the 100 block of Huber Street.  At the time there was no suspect description available, and police issued an advisory on the vehicle.

Then, at about 1:30 a.m., police say they received another call saying the stolen vehicle was back at the bar, and a third call saying the suspect was a possible drunk driver.

Police initiated a pursuit after they arrived at the bar, and say the suspect and vehicle was driving away from the scene.

According to Marion Police officials, police attempted a stop on the vehicle near Main and George Streets, but the suspect continued driving at speeds between 35 to 40 mph.

Police say the suspect then accelerated quickly onto Klerx Avenue, lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a residence, coming to rest on the opposite side of the house.

Police have identified the suspect in the vehicle as 23-year-old Cody O. Bosh of Marion.

Bosh was transported to Marion General Hospital, and was then later air lifted to Grant Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

The two residents of the house were treated as a precaution at Marion General Hospital, but suffered only minor injuries. Red Cross was called out to help the residences with temporary shelter repair of the home.

The investigation of the stolen vehicle and pursuit is ongoing by the Marion Police Department.
