A car stolen during a carjacking that took place on Interstate 95 from Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton ended after a crash on the side of the highway, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Fort Lauderdale police saw the vehicle in the 2700 block of West Sunrise Boulevard and followed it, a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman said.
The pursuit ended when the car crashed off I-95 at the exit ramp for Spanish River Boulevard.
Police reported, that three people were critically injured in the crash and two people were in custody, the Florida Highway Patrol official said.
