Two people have been arrested and a third is on the loose after a Thursday night pursuit in Phoenix.

The Department of Public Safety said officers began following the vehicle after a trooper tried to stop the driver for speeding excessively.

Crews terminated their pursuit, but the driver ran a red light near Interstate 17 and Bethany Home Road and apparently crashed their vehicle before attempting to run away from the scene.

Video from the scene showed a silver sedan with front end damage.

Two passengers inside the car were detained. The driver remains on the loose, DPS officials said.

No injuries were reported.
