The driver of a car involved in a crash that left two passengers injured is still missing tonight, as friends plead with her to turn herself in.

Shortly before 1am today in Gawler East in Adelaide's north, police allegedly tried to pull over a Mitsubishi Lancer on Gozzard Street for traffic offences.

But the sedan allegedly sped off, sparking a police chase which authorities say was called off before the crash.

A separate police patrol allegedly found the Lancer wedged between a power pole and a front fence minutes later.

A 16-year-old girl, of no fixed address, suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the Women's and Children's hospital.

A 21-year-old man, also of no fixed address, suffered minor injuries and was treated in Lyell McEwin Hospital.

Both were passengers in the car.

The woman police believe to be the driver, 25-year-old Madison Rees, has not been found.

Police said they had concerns for her welfare, as there was significant damage to the driver's side of the car.

Local resident Greg Muller said he had seen somebody run from the crash scene.

"She was screaming 'I can't handle this' or something, she just bolted," he said.

Friends of Ms Rees are pleading with her to turn herself in.

Anybody with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
