CALUMET CITY | Three people were injured after two theft suspects fled from police and crashed their car into an oncoming vehicle on Thursday afternoon.
Three men stole about eight to 10 prepaid cell phones from the Family Dollar Store at 231 Gold Coast Lane, Calumet City Police Captain Dan Zorzi said. After getting a description of the vehicle from the store, police observed the Chevrolet Cavalier headed northbound on Burnham Avenue and stopped it north of Sibley Boulevard on the Burnham Avenue bridge at about 1:15 p.m., he said.
The driver exited the car and was talking to officers, Zorzi said. As backup arrived, one of the two passengers in the car "jumped into driver's seat and drove off at a high rate of speed."
"The first driver was placed into custody and the backup officer went to go to try to locate the car that took off and as he got down at the bottom of the bridge, he could see it traveling at a high rate of speed going into the oncoming lane and strike a car, spin and flip," Zorzi said.
The suspects crashed into a Ford Taurus near 140th Street and Burnham Avenue, Zorzi said.
The suspect who had been driving was taken to Christ Hospital and Medical Center in Oak Lawn, and the other suspect, a passenger in the back seat, was taken to St. Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers in Hammond, he said.
"I'd have to say they were pretty serious injuries (to the suspects)," Zorzi said, but added that he didn't think their injuries were life-threatening.
A woman in the Ford Taurus also was taken to a hospital, and mainly seemed to have suffered cuts and bruises, Zorzi said.
He could not yet release the names of the suspects Thursday afternoon.
