A car crash brought a police pursuit, and the lives of the two fleeing suspects, to an end overnight, reports the Huffington Post. According to a vendor running a street-corner Valentine's Day gifts and novelties stand near Downtown, the two men stole cash and gift baskets, then fled to a nearby car. The authorities located the vehicle, and the suspects gave chase. However, during the pursuit "the suspects crashed into a parked vehicle and were thrown from the car. Both were pronounced dead at the scene."
