SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Two children, age 6 and 8, have been airlifted from the scene of a crash at I-75 and U.S. 301.

Florida Highway Patrol says the vehicle was under observation by the Manatee County Sheriff’s office, but the car fled when the deputy attempted to pull the car over. The deputy did not pursue the vehicle, because children were seen in the car. The vehicle crashed west of the I-75 interchange at 12:14 p.m.

The scene is currently under investigation.
