The second suspect who remains at large as of Friday morning. 

Three people were injured while suspects fled campus police at the University of Minnesota on Thursday. 

U of M police issued a release saying the incident unfolded around 3:30 p.m. when U of M Public Safety saw two suspects on security cameras stealing from parked cars. The suspects fled in a vehicle and officers gave pursuit. 

The suspects' vehicle was out of police sight when it caused multiple car accidents, the first at the intersection of 5th St. and 15th Ave., the second at the intersection of 5th St. and 12th Ave., and the third at the intersection of 5th St. and 10th Ave. 

The second crash resulted in two people in a car the suspects collided with being injured, one them identified as a U of M student, and they struck and injured a U of M staff member in the crash at 5th St. and 10th Ave. 

Fortunately, all three victims are expected to recover, although the severity of their injuries hasn't been disclosed. 

The suspects fled the scene on foot after the third crash. One of them was arrested blocks from 5th and 10th and the other is still at large. 

The second suspect has been described as a light-skinned female, possibly white or Asian, with black hair. She was wearing a white polka-dot shirt, dark pants and dark shoes, as seen in the image at the top of the story. 

Anyone with information about the incidents or of the suspects involved is asked to contact campus police at 612-624-2677.
