Oregon State Police is offering a $1,000 reward for information regarding two male suspects who crashed a stolen rental car into an police cruiser during a Jan. 1 car chase.

The two men are wanted after they attempted to elude an OSP officer who tried to stop them for a traffic violation. The suspects then swerved the 2003 Ford Taurus they were driving into the front of the pursuant patrol car. They later ditched the Taurus and were seen getting into a light blue or faded gray, four-door passenger car with Oregon plates.

One suspect is described as a white male, 25 to 30 years old, bald with scaring on his forehead. The other is a "scruffy" white male in his forties with short dark brown hair.

Anyone with information regarding the two suspects or the get-away vehicle are encouraged to contact Sgt. Darin Lux or Detective Mike Tabor at 541-440-3334.
