CSW BREAKING: Another Stolen Car Pursuit in KC-MO

KC-MO police are involved in another pursuit of a stolen vehicle in the same area as yesterday's chase that resulted in a spectacular crash at 55th Street and U.S. 71.

The police helicopter-led pursuit has traversed an area from Prospect and Swope Parkway from 39th Street south to 63rd Street.

So far- no reports of any crashes as the result of today's chase- but the suspect did strike a police car earlier in the incident.

The chase is currently around 31st Street and Prospect heading east and south.

UPDATE - 1441 CDT- The pursuit of the stolen SUV has ended at 2:34 p.m. with the black male driver "in custody" at 28th Street and Brooklyn.

There were no reports of any crashes or any injuries as the result of this "pursuit-"  called that even though it appeared that ground police units weren't actually chasing the suspect.

Officers remained in the area based on reports from the police helicopter that followed the suspect from above- and occasionally deployed road spikes that flattened all but one of the suspect's tires- slowing him.
