NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A Bayou St. John carjacking ended in a multi-vehicle crash that closed St. Charles Avenue in both directions for several hours Wednesday. 

Two suspects - a 15-year-old male and a 19-year-old male - are in custody.

The carjacking happened just before 5 p.m. in the 3000 block of Ponce de Leon Street. Police said after a woman was robbed of her Honda CRV, a description of the vehicle was broadcast on police radio.

Officers patrolling the area saw the Honda and pursued it to the corner of Jackson and St. Charles avenues, where the vehicle crashed and flipped.

Police said other cars were involved, but did not say how many. They have not yet released any information on possible injuries, saying the investigation is in the very early stages.
