PHOENIX -- What began as a police pursuit Tuesday night ended with an SUV lodged between a brick wall and a tree.

Maricopa County sheriff's deputies first spotted the SUV driving all over the road near Seventh Street and Buckeye Road.

The deputies tried to stop the SUV, but the driver took off, eventually turning onto the wrong side of the road on Washington Street.

Soon after the driver lost control, he crashed into a tree.

Investigators are trying to determine if he was under the influence or if the car was stolen.

The two people in the SUV received minor injuries.
