The suspect and at least one other person fled the scene in a stolen car and were involved in a crash on Green Road in South Euclid.

While a bomb squad was called to inspect the suspicious package located in the getaway car, one suspect and an innocent motorist were transported to the hospital from the crash scene.

Both are expected to be fine. 

The second suspect, an18-year-old man, jumped out of the car and ran. 

He was eventually found hiding in a garbage dumpster and taken into custody.
