OKLAHOMA COUNTY, OK — Three people were critically injured Sunday morning in a rollover crash during a police chase near northeast Edmond, reports KOCO.

Edmond Police said the crash happened at the intersection of Covell Road and Sooner Road.

An early investigation indicates two male suspects had stolen lumber from an area construction site when officers began following their vehicle. Early on in the pursuit, the driver dropped off the passenger, who was able to flee with all the lumber.

Officials said the driver later ran a red light and struck another vehicle carrying two elderly occupants, a man and a woman.

The suspect and the two victims were all transported to a local hospital with critical injuries. As of this writing, the suspect and the male victim remain in the intensive care unit but were listed in stable condition. The female victim continues to be in critical condition.

At this time, an investigation and a search for the other suspect remain underway.
