According to John Garlock from Heartland Connection the crash happened just before 6 p.m. when the driver, identified as David Mullins of Ottumwa, lost control of the car eight miles east of Queen City on Route E.

The car struck a utility pole, snapping it in half, before coming to rest in a ditch next to the road.

Schuyler County Sheriff Josh Dole told KTVO Chief Deputy Josh Mathes began the pursuit in Queen City at approximately 5:45 p.m. after spotting the stolen car from Henry County, Iowa.

Dole joined the pursuit a short time later.

He said when the two men were initially told by law enforcement to raise their hands, neither did.

The passenger was unresponsive.

Mullins eventually did raise his hands.

Mullins was taken by ambulance to Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville and then transferred to University Hospital in Columbia, where he was still being evaluated in the emergency room as of 9:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The passenger, who had to be cut free from the wreckage, was airlifted from the scene to Blessing Hospital in Quincy.

The trooper at the scene told KTVO both men had serious injuries.

Route E was blocked for about an hour-and-a-half until the scene could be cleared.

The name of the passenger is not yet being released.

Sheriff Dole said the two men were wanted on a number of warrants.

He said the two left the Iowa Residential Treatment Center in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa without permission.
