2 Carjacking Suspects Critically Injured After Police Chase, Crash: Authorities

Two carjacking suspects are in critical condition after police say they crashed a stolen vehicle during a police chase. 

The chase started after two masked carjackers robbed a man of his vehicle at gunpoint just after 9:45 a.m. in the 1000 block of West 61st Street, police said. 

The pair fled the scene in the stolen vehicle with police officers in pursuit, according to authorities. 

The vehicle then crashed in the 4900 block of South Wentworth less than 10 minutes later. 

Both suspects were taken into custody and transported to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in critical condition. 

Further details weren't immediately available. 

It was not known if the two suspects were related to recent surge of carjackings taking place in Chicago over the last few days.
