KOSCIUSKO, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man and woman driving a stolen car arrested after crashing into Kosciusko ditch.

At 8:52 p.m. the Kosciusko Police Department received a call about a wreck near N. Jackson Street and W. North Street. The caller said a car had ran into a large ditch about 30-40 yards off the road. 

When officers arrived, they found the car but no people inside. Bystanders said they saw a black male and a white female get out of the car and run.

Since the car didn't have a tag, officers ran the V.I.N. number. The car came back as a stolen car and was attached to a BOLO for Lessie Earl Proctor and Annastasia Coenen.  

A short time later, officers were directed to a location about 100 yards away where they found Coenen laying on the ground injured from the wreck. An ambulance was called and she was taken to a local hospital, then transferred to a Jackson hospital. She has not been charged with a crime by the Kosciusko Police Department at this time. 

Upon further investigation, officers learned that Proctor and Coenen were wanted for a string of robberies and carjackings in Florida. 

They also have other warrants in Arkansas, Iowa, and Illinois. 

Proctor was later spotted in the early morning hours in the same area of the crash, but ran from the officers. They eventually caught him and he was taken into custody at the intersection of Bachman Street and Hwy 35 north.

He was transported to the Kosciusko Police Department where he was processed and charged with Possession of Stolen Property( $50,000 bond) and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon ($25,000 bond).  He was then transported to the Leake County Correctional Facility.  

The case is still under investigation with multiple agencies working on it.
