Early Sunday Morning Police Pursuits in KC-MO- Leawood KS


T
here were 2 police pursuits of note overnight..
.



The first chase began around 2:05 a.m. in the vicinity of 85th Street and Troost in south KC-MO after a Metro Patrol police officer attempted to stop a small- white car for an unknown cause.

The car possibly containing up to 3 occupants sped off- racing westbound on 85th Street at speeds of 60 to 70 m.p.h. and speeding through red lights.

By 2:09 a.m.- the chase is southbound on State Line Road at reported speeds of "100 m.p.h.-" and the suspect vehicle isn't stopping at ANY red lights in it's path,

Leawood police are notified- but none of their cars arrive before the chase reaches Interstate 435.

The white car turns eastbound on I-435- then south at the Triangle to the U.S. 71 Red Bridge Road exit- and then east again on Red Bridge.

The police helicopter is now above the pursuit.

The chase continues into Ruskin Heights until- at 2:18 a.m.- the driver ditches the car at Longview Road and Sycamore Terrace and runs.

Within minutes- the driver- and possibly the other occupants- were in police custody.



The other pursuit was a brief one- in Leawood KS..

The driver of the vehicle being chased lost control and hit a tree at 103rd Street and Mission Road just after 3:30 a.m..

That "29-year-old male driver" was taken to a Kansas Metro medical trauma center with non life-threatening injuries- and believed to be under the influence of alcohol.
