Two men are still in the hospital after a chase with Lubbock County sheriffs ended in a deadly crash on Thursday.

The wreck occurred at I-27 and 82nd Street Thursday afternoon.

One of the people in the car admitted to police that they had been drinking. Police found drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.
