Police had initiated the chase at 20th and Main, according to police spokesman Jacob Becchina.
Officers successfully deployed stop sticks at 18th and Main.
Wendy Burrell of Overland Park said the area was crowded, possibly due to the Imagine Dragons concert that was scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at the nearby Sprint Center.
“I can’t believe no pedestrians were hurt,” she said.
Police said the suspect suffered a minor injury to his head as a result of the crash. No other injuries were reported.
There was no structural damage to the building, Becchina said.
