ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One man is in jail tonight, while another remains at Phoebe Putney Hospital after leading Worth County and GSP officials on a chase approximately 4:10 p.m. Friday.

Johnathan Brown and Ontario Marshall are facing marijuana possession charges and a list of traffic violations.

The chase ended when they crashed in a family's yard in Dougherty County.

Christy Grizzard and her daughter Jordan live on Gibson Road where the chase came to a halt.

"I cried and ran into my room," said Jordan.

"I panicked, I through my kids back in their room and told them to stay there," Christy said. "I didn't know if it was coming through the house or where I was at until I opened the door."

The car was eventually towed away as the Grizzard family picked up pieces of glass littered around their yard,  thankful that it's the only thing they have to worry about.

"It could have been a lot worse, thank God it wasn't," said the elder Grizzard.

Marshall is in good condition at Phoebe Putney Hospital.
