The officer riding the motorcycle lost control at one point during the chase for reasons that remained unclear and crashed into a factory yard.

The two men were transferred to a military hospital for treatment of their injuries, the extent of which remained unclear on Wednesday.

Other officers were dispatched to continue the search for the suspects in the vehicle.
