Two people were taken to the hospital for their injuries and then arrested after an early Wednesday morning crash in Lexington.

According to police, an officer on patrol spotted a car with two people inside on Seventh Street. The officer said the car looked suspicious and pulled it over.

When the officer started to approach the car, he said he noticed heavy front end damage and a hole in the windshield. He called for backup and two ambulances to check on the victims.
