KENT, Wash. -- A carjacking suspect was injured while being dragged in a wild altercation caught on video in Kent, Washington, Friday.

Police arrested the suspect, who was later taken to the hospital for treatment. Officials didn't release the severity of his injuries.

The victims also suffered minor injuries during the struggle, according to KIRO.

The case is under investigation.
