Two murder suspects killed in crash during police pursuit

ORLANDO, Fla. - Two murder suspects were killed in a crash that injured three others during police chase in Orlando.

Orlando police say members of the fugitive unit tried to stop a car they were following just after 7 p.m. Thursday. That's when the driver sped up, lost control of the vehicle on a turn and crossed a median before crashing into a canal. The driver and a passenger were killed. The other passengers, including a woman, were hospitalized.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the two dead men are suspected of killing a street preacher in Orlando. He was shot Tuesday while carrying his Bible. The preacher's name hasn't been released because authorities haven't located his relatives.

Investigators from Orlando police and the Florida Highway Patrol were processing the crash site late Thursday.
