JACKSON, Miss. – Two stolen vehicles crashed into each other in Jackson, Mississippi Tuesday with the would-be thieves fleeing the scene. 

According to the Jackson Police Department, a vehicle was stolen from a south Jackson gas station around 4 a.m. It collided with another stolen vehicle, a silver Mercedes SUV from Clinton, Mississippi, blocks from the Jackson State University campus, before crashing again. 

The occupants of both vehicles fled. JPD did not provide the time of the accident but tweeted about the incident at 5:23 a.m. In a second tweet, the department said "an injured male was located a short distance away from the second crash." Police believe he was in the vehicle stolen from Jackson but did not say whether he was the driver or a passenger. The cause of the accident was not given. 

JPD did not provide the number of people involved in the crash but said via Twitter that the "occupants" of the second vehicle had not been located. 

JPD spokesperson Sgt. Roderick Holmes said via text, to his knowledge, the suspects were not working together. The condition of the injured male was unknown Tuesday afternoon. 

Mark Jones, spokesperson for the city of Clinton, said the SUV was stolen from the city two weeks ago, "with the keys still in it." Jones declined to provide additional details, citing an "active investigation."
