Police arrested an Antioch man who crashed a stolen pickup truck into a home while fleeing officers Sunday night, police said. An officer first spotted the suspect about 11:30 p.m. driving a Ford F-250 truck with license plates that didn’t match the vehicle, police said.

According to police, the officer tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver took off, leading police on a chase.

The driver, identified as Mark Dickinson, 53, eventually lost control of the truck and crashed into the home on Golden Bear Drive, police said.

Residents in the home were not injured.
While officers were trying to take Dickinson into custody, he resisted and a police dog assisted, Antioch police said.

The vehicle was stolen out of Concord, according to police. The incident remains under investigation.
