Two witnesses at the scene said they also saw the Durango chasing a white car at a high rate of speed, possibly 80 to 100 MPH.

The Durango had crashed and rolled off the edge of the roadway when officers arrived. However, a 17-year-old girl crawled out of the vehicle and fled the scene on foot towards several houses, police said.

Another witness said he saw the girl jump over a fence and walk into his yard, located in the 3300 block of N.W. 40th Street. The girl then pulled out a revolver pistol and a brown paper bag full of unspent .38 special rounds, and threw them under the front of the witness's car, according to police.

Police were able to apprehend the girl and took her into custody.

The driver of the Durango, another 17-year-old juvenile, received minor injuries from the crash. Police say the driver did not have a driver's license and was also arrested.
