TULSA, OK – A Tulsa driver was injured after an accident on Monday caused by a pair of would-be shoplifters.

According to News on 6, the incident began as a group of three people tried to walk out of a QuikTrip convenience store with beer they hadn’t purchased. A police officer in the store noticed the attempted crime and grabbed one of the shoplifters.

The other two thieves attempted to flee the scene in a dark-colored sedan, but collided with a minivan that was turning in front of them. The minivan’s driver was injured in the crash, as were both suspects.
