Two suspected car thieves high-tailed it around Houston overnight, with police in hot pursuit.Authorities say the driver drove around downtown and then on the South Freeway and onto the South Loop. They eventually crashed while trying to take a turn off the South Loop at more than 90 miles per hour.

The car hit a telephone pole and then slid into the front end of a squad car.

Both men in the vehicle were arrested for felony evading. The passenger turned out to be on parole for auto theft already. No one was hurt in the chase or in the accident.
