Two people were arrested on outstanding warrants following a head-on crash that sent them and three others -- including a 2-year-old -- to the hospital.

Jarius Moore, 25, and Reggie Johnson, 32, were arrested after police tried to pull over a vehicle Sunday night. Police say an officer saw the car -- a black Honda -- make an improper lane change.

When the officer tried to pull the Honda over, it kept going before crossing the center line near 34th Street and Brewer Drive and collided head-on with another vehicle. 

The Honda flipped in the crash.

Inside the Honda, which police later found out to be stolen, were Moore -- the driver -- Johnson, 25-year-old Ronika Perkins and an unidentified 2-year-old girl.

All four people in the Honda were taken to a hospital in good condition. The driver of the vehicle hit by the Honda was also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Moore is expected to face more charges related to running from police and the crash.
