The driver, later identified as Shykeim Edwin Lewis, 19, led the officer on a high-speed vehicle chase, which ended when he "eventually swerved to avoid a crash before slamming into the gates outside Swift's home".

Police say a auto stolen in CT crashed into the gates of the pop star Taylor Swift's beachfront Rhode Island home.

The vehicle failed to negotiate a curve near Swift's home, struck the wall outside her property and then ricocheted into the main entrance gate, according to police reports.

Police said the car was stolen in Hartford Conn. and that officers from Hopkinton and Westerly pursued the vehicle with four occupants around 1 a.m. Tuesday

The chase started around 1 a.m. Tuesday when a Hopkinton officer on patrol noticed the auto had no license plates and tried to pull it over, Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey told The Sun of Westerly. Police officials were apparently conducting a traffic stop with the driver at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday (April 2) before they suddenly hit the gas and sped away.

While nobody was home at the time of the crash, some fans were curious to know what Taylor thought of the incident. Per the celebrity gossip outlet, speed racer was charged with "reckless driving, felony receiving stolen goods, obstructing an officer and driving on a suspended or denied license". Lewis struck the white wall outside of Swift's property with the vehicle and then ricocheted into the main entrance gate.
