COBURN GORE - Two Canadian teenagers have been arrested after leading authorities on multiple high speed chases across the Maine border Tuesday morning.
According to the Maine State Police, a 16 year-old boy from Eganville, Ontario and a 13 year-old girl from Pembroke, Ontario are in custody after leading police on a high speed chase on Route 27 with speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
It happened at the Coburn Gore US Border Crossing with Quebec.
Border Patrol fired shots after the vehicle struck two Border Patrol vehicles.
The fleeing vehicle was later found abandoned in Kingfield.
Police say the pair stole a Dodge pick-up truck in Maine from a near-by home.
The pick-up was reportedly driving erratically when Maine State Police began to follow it, deployed spike strips and the vehicle came to rest along a guard rail on Route 27.
The teenagers attempted to flee on foot down an embankment into the Carrabassett River, before they were captured.
Both were taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington for evaluation.
The girl has since been transferred to Maine Medical Center in Portland with possible internal injuries from the rocky embankment.
Quebec Police say the initial chase began after a weekend crime spree in Canada.
Their names have not been released due to their age.
