Tulsa Police are searching for two suspects after an attempted truck theft led to a chase and rollover crash near Downtown Tulsa, Wednesday Evening.
Corporal Steve Wood tells KTUL.com, that around 6:30 a man walked out of a business and "interrupted two subjects breaking into his truck." Wood says the suspects then took off in a nearby pick-up with the man giving chase on foot.
As the suspects were fleeing the scene, they crashed their truck into a car near 15th and Cheyenne, causing it to flip onto its side. They then ditched their truck and ran northbound from the scene.
The driver of the car was transported by EMSA to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Tulsa Police do not have a good suspect description at this time. They're asking anyone in the area who may have seen anything to contact Crimestoppers at (918) 596-COPS (9677).
