A couple was seriously injured in a wreck in Catoosa County after fleeing state troopers on Friday night.

Mardel January, 55, was airlifted to Erlanger Hospital. David Elliott, 41, was also taken to Erlanger.

A trooper began following a suspected stolen car when the vehicle sped up to speeds as high as 110 mph.

The second collision caused it to overturn.

The GSP said Elliott had warrants for failure to appear in Idaoho and was driving on a suspended license out of Missouri.
