BUTLER, Ohio (AP) — Police say they plan to file several charges against a couple that crashed into two cruisers during a high-speed chase in Ohio.

The police chase ended after the couple crashed into a wooded area in Butler Township Monday night. Authorities say the man and woman, both 26, have been hospitalized with injuries that are not life-threatening.

Police say the chase started after officers tried to stop the couple from stealing less than $100 worth of merchandise from a Walmart. Chief John Porter says the driver struck a police cruiser in the parking lot, hit a dumpster and then backed into a second cruiser.

No officers were injured. Porter says the cruisers are out of service and need to be repaired.

The suspects’ identities have not been released.
