VIDEO: Stolen Police Car Pursuit In Philly

A wild chase involving two stolen police cruisers winded through Pennsylvania and New Jersey Tuesday morning and resulted in the arrest of two suspects.

A Camden (N.J.) Police officer had pulled over a vehicle with a man and a woman in front of the Police Administration Building at about 9:50 a.m. and was writing a ticket, when the suspects struck him and jumped into his patrol car, reports the Courier-Post.

Additional units converging on the suspects pursued the stolen squad over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and into Philadelphia. The suspects wrecked the patrol car around 10:05 a.m. at 7th and Norris streets. The male suspect was taken into custody, and in the chaos the female was able to jump into a Philadelphia PD cruiser.

The woman, identified as Shayna Sykes, then led officers on a second high-speed pursuit, weaving through narrow Philadelphia streets and striking a pedestrian and several civilian and police vehicles.

At one point, news copters captured video of the battered police vehicle smoking and catching fire. The cruiser eventually came to a stop, and officers converged on the car and arrested Sykes.

The injured Camden PD officer received medical treatment and is listed in stable condition, reports CBS Philadelphia.
