ST. LOUIS — Two carjackings in St. Louis ended with both vehicles crashing on the Illinois side of the region.
Police say two of the suspects, ages 18 and 20, were involved in both crimes. No charges have been filed.
It began late Tuesday downtown, where a GMC Jimmy was taken at gunpoint.
About 1:45 a.m. Wednesday, the stolen SUV pulled beside a Lincoln Continental. Police say a third suspect, age 32, was armed with a semiautomatic gun, demanded the Lincoln and drove onto the Martin Luther King Bridge. The other two suspects followed in the SUV.
The SUV crashed into a limousine on the bridge. Both suspects were ejected and injured. The 18-year-old is not expected to survive.
A short time later, the Lincoln struck a tree in East St. Louis, Ill. The 32-year-old suspect is hospitalized.
