Suspected car thief hits pole after Detroit police chase
A 19-year-old man suspected of stealing a SUV in Dearborn hit a pole after fleeing from police officers Wednesday afternoon on Detroit's west side, police said.
Detroit Police officers were tracking the possible stolen vehicle — a gray 2003 Honda Pilot — when they tried to pull over the driver near W. Chicago and Schaefer.
He fled west on Chicago and then struck a pole at the eastbound service drive on I-96 near Livernois, police said. The driver was arrested and two passengers were detained, a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl.
The driver and the girl were taken to a local hospital for injuries. Their conditions were unknown. Police are investigating.
