MACON COUNTY -- Two people were sent to the hospital after a scary car chase. It happened Sunday night. Sheriff's deputies say they tried to pull over a 16-year old driver, but he took off instead. He ended up crashing through a fence onto I-72.

A 53-year old woman was driving on the interstate and was hit. Both were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No word why the 16-year old fled to begin with. State police and sheriff's deputies are investigating.
