Multiple law enforcement agencies are on the scene of a high-speed chase that ended in a crash in Lafayette. 

Abbeville Police Chief Bill Spearman says the chase started in Abbeville before ending in Lafayette. The suspect’s vehicle hit a car near Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital and then hit a truck head-on at the intersection of Kaliste Saloom and Long Plantation, Spearman says. 

Two suspects are in custody. One gun was recovered from the suspect’s vehicle. 

Spearman says he cannot confirm, at this time, if the suspects are wanted in connection with a homicide. 

No one was injured, the chief says. 

Traffic is backed up at the intersection.

Lafayette police, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s deputies, Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s deputies and state police assisted in the chase. 

This is a developing story.
