JOHOR BAHARU, July 10 (Bernama) -- In their bid to escape from the police, two suspected car-jackers were injured when the car they were traveling in, skidded and crashed in Skudai Kiri here yesterday.

The Proton Satria car was reduced to a wreck at a road-shoulder, following a 15-minute chase by a police patrol car about 4.50pm.

Johor Baharu Utara police chief ACP Ruslan Hassan said the duo, in their late 30s, were detained and sent to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital.

"Our initial investigations revealed the vehicle was reported stolen in Majidee in 2011, and the duo are suspected to be car thieves," he told reporters here today.
