(KFOR)  Police in Oklahoma have captured the last two of eight inmates who escaped a prison transport van Tuesday afternoon. 

Michael Coleman and Lester Burns were on the run for several hours after stealing the van, then ditching it and the other six inmates inside. 

A private company called Prisoner Transportation Services owns the stolen van. 

Investigators say two guards were taking the convicts to Tennessee when they stopped at a hospital for one of the inmates, who had complained of chest pains.
