In 2004, a Grandview police officer engaged in a pursuit hit this car in Leawood at 81 mph, severely injuring a 16-year-old in the passenger-side seat. Johnson County prosecutors charged the two officers involved in the chase with misdemeanor reckless driving, prompting area police chiefs to discuss having a common police pursuit policy.
