HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Two juveniles were seriously injured when they crashed a stolen car into a concrete wall under the Katy Freeway, deputies said late Wednesday.

The incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. at the Highway 6 underpass.

A Harris County Pct. 5 Deputy Constable said the teens flew by him, possibly at 100 mph, heading eastbound on the freeway. The driver allegedly refused to pull over, however.

Authorities said the young driver tried to make the turn onto Highway 6, but he was going too fast. The vehicle struck the curb and went airborne, hitting a concrete wall about 12 feet off the ground.

The two juveniles were taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

According to Pct. 5 officials, the car was reported stolen in an aggravated robbery earlier in the day.

Deputies found a gun inside the car as well as a wallet with I.D. and credit cards, which did not belong to the suspects.
