SA pair sought over car theft, crashes

A man and a woman are on the run in Adelaide after stealing a car and crashing into several other vehicles, including a police car.

Police say the stolen SUV was spotted at a fast-food restaurant at Edwardstown just after 10.30pm on Tuesday, before the driver reversed into another car in the drive-through section before hitting a police car while fleeing.

A third car was also hit as the SUV took off and the pair were briefly pursued by police before the car was found abandoned a short time later.

Cordons were set up and a search conducted with the help of the dog squad, but the pair escaped.
