Three people were taken into custody in Milwaukee Friday night following a high-speed chase with a stolen car that ended with a crash. 

Police say officers began chasing the car around 10:30 p.m. after a car was stolen during an armed robbery. 

The pursuit ended with the stolen vehicle crashing into a concrete street light pole in the area of W North Ave and N. 12th St.  

The three suspects, aged 21, 22 and 17 years old, were taken into custody after a short foot chase. 

The two officers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital. 

The squad car suffered extensive damage after the light pole fell on top of it.
