Authorities have identified two suspects who allegedly drove a stolen vehicle through Valley streets Wednesday before crashing into a west Phoenix house.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said 18-year-old Angelo Misquez and 19-year-old Robert Luna are in custody after crashing the pickup truck into a school bus, two other vehicles and then a house just before 2 p.m.

Detectives tracked a LoJack stolen vehicle signal to the area of Interstate 10 and 35th Avenue in Phoenix when Misquez and Luna were seen getting into the white Ford pickup truck and driving away, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The pickup truck went to Avondale, back to Phoenix, Glendale and then back to Phoenix, said DPS.

In the area of 62nd Avenue and Broadway Road, DPS said the pickup truck hit a school bus carrying 10 children, one occupied passenger car and a parked car.

Misquez and Luna eventually went into a neighborhood near 59th Avenue and Broadway Road.

Air15 video showed smoke coming from the pickup truck when it crashed into the right of a vacant home's garage door.

The suspects ran out of the truck, and one was immediately taken into custody, according to DPS. The other barricaded himself in a nearby house and was later taken into custody. 

Misquez and Luna are each facing one count of theft of means of transportation, 12 counts of aggravated assault and two counts of criminal damage, DPS said.

Misquez was booked on an active warrant for his arrest, and additional charges are pending.

No injuries were reported.
