Robs banks, crashes SUV

Two people were arrested in Vancouver Saturday afternoon after the alleged robbers crashed their stolen getaway vehicle after a string of bank robberies.

After a bank on Commercial Drive was robbed just after 1 p.m., a second bank robbery was reported just 30 minutes later, at East Broadway and Commercial Drive.

Just minutes after the second robbery, the suspects crashed their stolen black Porsche Cayenne SUV at the intersection of Clark Drive and East 1st Avenue, hitting four other vehicles in the process.

Police were able to block the SUV and arrest the man and woman inside.

Four occupants of one of the vehicles involved in the crash were taken to hospital with what were believed to be minor injuries.

Police continue to investigate the robberies and collision.
