Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life- threatening injuries from a crash when they tried speeding away from police in La Mesa, authorities said Tuesday.

Just before 11:30 p.m. Monday, officers tried pulling over a car in the 7700 block of Alvarado Road due to its taillight being out, according to the San Diego Police Department. The car’s driver would not stop and ended up crashing into a wall and flipping over. Both occupants in the car were ejected, according to TV reports.

A man was thrown out of the car and into the middle of the road while a woman was trapped underneath the car when it flipped over, according to ABC 10.

It is unknown why they led police on a pursuit or what charges the two may face, according to police.
