Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers are looking for two men who led them on a pursuit Monday morning before escaping on foot.

According to DPS spokesman Quentin Mehr, the incident stated at 2:48 a.m, when a trooper stopped a vehicle westbound on I-10 at Prince for a traffic violation. The vehicle, with a man driving and another man as passenger, sped off eastbound on the westbound Prince on-ramp, striking another DPS vehicle. The suspects then led DPS troopers on a short vehicle pursuit before both men bailed out and ran off on foot.

The suspects are still at large. No one was injured in the collision.
