DENVER — Two suspects were taken into custody early Monday after fleeing from Denver police and crashing a car.
Christine Downs with the Denver Police Department said police initially responded to a felony menacing call. Police have not released where they responded. When officers arrived, the suspects drove away and police followed them.
Around 1:30 a.m., the suspects — an adult male and juvenile male — crashed the car into a tree at Speer Boulevard and Bannock Street. They were transported to a hospital and taken into custody.
