An interrupted burglary ended in a high speed chase, a crash and left two suspects in the hospital in Owensboro Friday morning.

Owensboro Police tell 14 News that 24-year-old John Michael Brown of Owensboro, and a 15 year old male were seriously injured in the incident.

It began with a burglary call at Quality Motors on Triplett Street just before 5am CST Friday. When officers arrived, a red 2006 Ford Mustang, stolen from the business, tore out of the lot and went east on 18th Street, running a red light as it crossed Breckenridge Street. Police say Brown was driving.

It then struck a box truck in the 1400 block of East 18th Street. Images show the stolen car mangled almost beyond recognition. Both Brown and the teen were unconscious. They were taken to Owensboro Mercy Hospital. Their conditions were not released.

Charges are pending in the case.
