ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 23-year-old man isn’t expected to survive injuries he suffered in Albuquerque when the sedan he was traveling in was struck by a stolen Jeep that had run a red light during a police pursuit.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that six others were hospitalized in the collision early Saturday.

Authorities say 23-year-old D’Markus Blea suffered skull, rib and vertebrae fractures.

At least two people in the Jeep are accused of trying to wipe their finger prints off the vehicle. Both have been jailed.

Officers say the Jeep was stolen Friday night during an armed robbery and was spotted several hours later.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled.

Police say the Jeep driver ran multiple red lights before crashing into Blea’s car.
