PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police said a woman was driving drunk when she led officers on a high-speed chase and then crashed into the bedroom of a Northeast Portland home early Tuesday morning.

Officers tried to stop Sarah Rascoe, 33, at N.E. 82nd Avenue and Halsey Street but she refused to stop. Officers chased after the car for several blocks and tried unsuccessfully to stop it.

Rascoe tried making a turn onto Eugene Street from 92nd Avenue but hit a street sign and a fence before crashing into a home, police said.

The home's owner, Kari Harrison, said her girlfriend was in bed when the car came crashing through the wall. The car missed her by a few feet, but Harrison said it could have turned out differently.

"We just moved in a couple months ago, and we had decided over a long period of time where we wanted to put the bed, and thank goodness we didn't put the bed there," Harrison said.

Rascoe was arrested on a number of charges, including driving with a suspended license and driving under the influence.
