2 hospitalized after chase, crash

Two men are in the hospital after a high speed chase and crash overnight.

The chase started around 4 a.m. in Springfield Township.

Police ran the license plate during a traffic stop and discovered open warrants, but the driver took off.

The chase came down Spring Grove Avenue, where the car lost a wheel and crashed into a pole.

Both men had to be taken to the hospital but are expected to be OK.

The open warrants weren't for either man in the car. Police say the passenger may be released, but the driver will likely face charges.
