A pair who crashed while being chased by deputies in Taney County are in the hospital.
Edward Roney, from Crocker, was driving the SUV. Deputies believe he stole the vehicle in Springfield and went down Highway 65 to Branson.
When Roney didn't pull over, officers laid out spike strips. Troopers say he tried to avoid the spikes and ran into the median, crashing into a drainage ditch.
Troopers say neither Roney nor his passenger, Amber Harris, were wearing seat belts.
