Blackfoot Police arrested two Bannock County residents following a high-speed chase on Friday.
Officers arrested Daniel R. Wallace, 34, of Chubbuck and Kylee R. Borjas-Black, 23 of Pocatello after they fled on foot following a crash about milepost 99 on U.S. Highway 91. Idaho State Police troopers investigated that crash which occurred about 5:44 p.m.
A BPD officer was in pursuit of Wallace's 2003 Pontiac Grand Am when a second officer spiked Wallace's tires. Wallace lost control and struck a 2005 Kia Spectra driven by David J. Contreras, 17, of Blackfoot.
Contreras and his three passengers: Porfirio Juarez, 17 of Blackfoot; Getzely Huerta-Valenzuela, 15 of Aberdeen; and Diego J. Gonzalez, 17 of Moreland, were all transported by ground ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital.
The northbound lane of travel on US91 was blocked for 2 hours while crews worked to remove the wreckage.
