SUV thieves crash into another vehicle after Hillsborough Sheriff's Office pursuit

TAMPA — Thieves fleeing from deputies crashed into another vehicle Friday at 52nd Street and E Columbus Drive, authorities say.

About 3 p.m., deputies got a call about a stolen sports utility vehicle. They spotted the Mitsubishi SUV in Palm River and tried to pull it over, but the driver fled, prompting a short pursuit, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The stolen vehicle crashed into a Nissan Quest near Interstate 4. Deputies took two people into custody. One suspect and the driver of the other vehicle were treated for minor injuries.

Deputies did not immediately release the names of those involved, nor the speeds reached in the chase. Department policy allows for vehicle pursuits, as long as they are "reasonable" and "prudent," said sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon.
