JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Two people were hit by a pickup truck Tuesday at the end of a police chase in Florida, authorities said.

Jonathan Wesley Blackburn, 19, and Mark Edward Howard, 26, were both arrested following the 15-minute chase, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

An officer had stopped Blackburn, who was driving, and began asking the two men questions, the Florida Times-Union reported. At some point, Blackburn sped away, police said. Officers chased them for more than a mile before they swerved onto a sidewalk, hit two pedestrians and crashed into a building.
