The dangers of police vehicle chases
Two people were injured Wednesday after a teenager driving away from police crashed into another vehicle in Wyandotte County.
The incident was reported to the Kansas Highway Patrol shortly before 10:30 a.m. at Kansas 5 highway and 18th Street.
It was unclear what prompted the chase involving the 17-year-old, but as she ran a stoplight at the intersection she struck another vehicle, according to the patrol.
Both drivers were transported to a hospital with injuries suspected to be serious, according to the patrol. A passenger in the fleeing vehicle wasn’t injured.
