NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Jefferson Parish Deputies are searching for two suspects wanted in connection with a car chase that ended in Mid-City.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Col. John Fortunato said a deputy was driving down Earhart Expressway when a license plate camera got a hit on a stolen vehicle.

Fortunato said the deputy chased the suspects, who continued to drive into Orleans Parish and eventually down Banks street in Mid-City.

Witnesses said they heard a loud boom when the suspects’ car crashed and was pinned by the deputy’s cruiser into a home on the corner of Salcedo and Banks.

Fortunato said two suspects got out of the car and took off on foot. Deputies are still searching for them.

One man was injured in the incident when his car was hit just feet away from the crash. He was taken away in an ambulance but appeared to be okay.
