DETROIT, MICHIGAN- A high speed chase that lasted 62-seconds and reached speeds of up to 95-miles-per-hour ended with two children killed with three others and a adult hurt.

It was through a Detroit neighborhood and police say a supervisor tried to call off officers involved in the chase by radio but was unsuccessful. Officers also say they lost sight of the car before it crashed.

The driver struck and killed two children, plus put three other kids and the adult in the hospital. He and his passenger were arrested after the car crashed. The police say officers gave chase when they spotted a gun but no weapon was found in the car.

The Detroit Police Department says it doesn't know yet if the officers violated pursuit rules and policies.
