PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Two people are in custody after a police pursuit ended in Germantown late Tuesday afternoon. A boy and a girl are hospitalized after being struck in a collision involving the vehicle police were chasing. 

Philadelphia police say troopers began chasing the silver Hyundai Entourage on the Schuylkill Expressway around 4 p.m. State police initiated a traffic stop on the car, and when they approached the vehicle, the suspects fled away, leading to the pursuit. 

When the suspected car exited the highway, authorities say a gun was thrown out of the vehicle, which police officers were later able to recover. 

The pursuit ended when the car struck a parked vehicle in the 5200 block of Morris Street. 

The parked vehicle hit the two kids: a 13-year-old girl who may have suffered a broken ankle, and a 12-year-old boy who suffered injuries to his lower left leg. 

The crash scene covers both sides of the street and one vehicle is in between two parked cars. All three cars are damaged. Vehicles on the other side of the street were also banged up. 

Authorities say Renaldo McPercy Robichaw was driving the car and has been arrested. There is an arrest warrant out for James Adams, who they say was the passenger.
