WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Two carjacking suspects are behind bars Wednesday morning. They are accused of leading sheriff's deputies on a chase, and then crashing into a gas pump in a fiery explosion.

The chase began just before 2 a.m. Wednesday in Lake Park. Police say the suspects approached a person driving a Ford Focus and demanded the car.

Police spotted the stolen vehicle in West Palm Beach where they tried to pull the driver over. The driver took off, but crashed into a Shell gas station at the corner of Belvedere Road and Australian Avenue. The car then burst into flames. 

The two suspects tried to run from the scene, but were quickly arrested. They will be charged with carjacking, fleeing and eluding.

The suspects and the carjacking victim received minor injuries.
