Two men were killed in a two-vehicle crash on Detroit's west side following an attempted traffic stop in Southfield, police said.  

The crash occured around 12:30 a.m. Friday at Telegraph and Grand River.

The incident started in the Southfield, where police attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a 46-year-old man driving a Chevy Corvette. The man fled the scene, but officers did not pursue, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a Detroit Police Department spokesman.

Driving at a high rate of speed, the Chevy Corvette struck a Chrysler Pacifica driven by a 41-year-old man. 

Both the driver of the Corvette and the driver of the Pacifica were killed.  

In another accident nearby a few minutes later, a man driving a Dodge Charger struck a Chrysler 200 with four occupants. Police are looking for the driver of the Dodge Charger who fled the scene.

There were no injuries in that crash, Donakowski said.
