Pair of teen punks lead cops on high-speed chase in stolen SUV; suffer spectacular self-own preserved forever on video

Two juveniles are in custody after a high-speed chase with police Friday morning in Minneapolis culminated with their vehicle crashing through a bridge guardrail and landing just feet away from Interstate 94, KARE-TV reported.

Here's the clip:

What happened?

A Minnesota state trooper spotted a Kia speeding northbound on I-94 near Broadway just before 7 a.m., State Patrol spokesman Lt. Gordon Shank told KARE.

The trooper tried to make a traffic stop as the vehicle exited on Dowling, but the station said the driver refused to pull over and instead fled at speeds that reached 94 miles per hour.

The fleeing driver got back on I-94 and then exited on 49th Avenue, Shank told KARE.

That was the end of the road for the teens' apparent escape plan.

Video shows the SUV crashing through a guardrail, plunging from a bridge, and landing on its roof in an area just off the interstate.

Had the SUV crashed through the guardrail more in the middle of the bridge, it would've landed on the busy interstate. Vehicles were seen motoring past the crashed SUV during the morning rush.

But wait, there's more...

After the SUV landed on its roof, the mangled vehicle rolled right-side up — and both teens miraculously got out and ran for it: One suspect opened the driver's side door while the other suspect pushed through the shattered windshield.

KARE said the pair ran into a nearby neighborhood, but law enforcement found and arrested them. The following clip apparently shows them tempting fate yet again, running across the interstate and high-tailing it along the center island as more cars whiz past them.

Shank told the station that injuries suffered in the incident are "non-life threatening" and confirmed that the Kia in question was reported stolen.
