FREMONT, Calif. (AP) - A Meals-on-Wheels truck was carjacked in the San Francisco Bay Area Thursday leading to a police pursuit and the ultimate damage of the vehicle when it flipped over on a freeway.

KNTV reports (http://bit.ly/1ry1L9j ) Friday that officials estimate it will cost roughly $45,000 to buy a new truck.

The van, which provides meals to seniors, was carjacked by Fremont City Hall when a man and a woman ran toward the driver, jumped into the truck and took off. The driver was not injured.

A chase ensued and the vehicle flipped over on Interstate Highway 580 in Castro Valley. No meals were damaged. Police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said the two suspects, a 45-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, were arrested, and one was bitten by a police dog. They’re facing charges of carjacking, evading police and resisting arrest. Their conditions were not available Friday.
