Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Three people have been injured following a brief high-speed car chase involving Des Moines police.
   Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Parizek says officers stopped a Jeep Friday afternoon after the department received a tip about suspicious activity involving the vehicle. Police say three suspects were in the car before one of them exited and began to run.
   Officers pursued the running suspect but also the vehicle, which sped away.
   The chase lasted about a minute before the Jeep turned onto a one-way street and struck an SUV. The driver of the SUV received minor injuries and at least one person in the fleeing Jeep was ejected from the car. Additional details about the third injured person were not released. Police say they've made two arrests.
