WICHITA, Kan. -

A woman and her two-year-old daughter crash into a house after police say she was trying to get away from a man attempting to steal her car.

It happened near 11th and Volutsia Monday night.

Police say this was the last in a string of crimes.  The 26-year-old suspect is also in the hospital with injuries from the crash.

Once he's released, he will be charged with several crimes.

The woman is hospitalized in critical condition. Her 2-year-old daughter was taken to the hospital, but was not seriously hurt.

There were two people in the house at the time. They were not hurt but the homeowner says he's grateful to be alive.

" If I'd been in there cooking or eating, I might not be alive. She came in with a lot of force and plowed right into the kitchen," said Mark Barnes.
