CAMDEN, SC (WIS) -

Two Columbia teens have been arrested and deputies are looking for a third person following a pursuit with deputies in Kershaw County Sunday that ended in a crash. 

According to Kershaw County Sheriff James Matthews, the pursuit started just after 5:30 p.m. in Kershaw County when a deputy on eastbound Interstate 20 noticed a speeding vehicle coming up behind the unmarked patrol car. Matthews says the pursuit reached speeds as high as 130 miles per hour on eastbound I-20. 

Matthews says the vehicle ran several vehicles off the road.

The deputy pulled out of the pursuit when the speed became too dangerous. The vehicle was later found by Lee County Sheriff's deputies, who started pursuing it again. 

The pursuit re-entered Kershaw County on I-20. 

Deputies clocked the vehicle at 140 mph as it entered Camden on Highway 34. Again the pursuit was called off because of the danger. 

Deputies say they attempted to use stop sticks to puncture the vehicle's tires and stop the pursuit. The vehicle stopped when it crashed into another vehicle at Broad and Dekalb Streets in downtown Camden. 

Sheriff Matthews says the driver in the vehicle that was hit did not appear to be injured but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Three people in the stolen vehicle ran from the scene. One suspect was found hiding behind a home in the 900 block of Market Street. A second suspect was arrested at a home a few blocks away on Market Street.

Markeem Lamonte Hammond, 17, and Kenneth Roger Robinson, Jr.,17, both of Columbia were arrested by Camden Police. Matthews says investigators were told the name of the person driving the vehicle, whom they are working to verify and arrest. The driver's name has not been released yet. 

All three men were wearing backpacks when they attempted to run away. Matthews says officers found ammunition, whiskey bottles and cell phones in the vehicle. 

The vehicle was reported stolen out of Columbia.
