ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies had to jump out of the way after suspected thieves in two vehicles drove in their direction while fleeing a burglary on Thursday.

The sheriff’s office says deputies were responding to an alarm call at an auto auction business when they saw headlights leaving the front gate and had to jump out of the way.

A semi cab and a flatbed truck drove off, starting a pursuit that ended when the truck crashed into a house and an unoccupied Albuquerque police vehicle. The driver of that truck ran off but was later caught. The driver of the semi cab crashed into a car and stopped. Its driver fled and hasn’t been caught, but a passenger was taken into custody.
