ATCHISON, Kan. — In a story Oct. 5 about a police pursuit in Kansas, The Associated Press erroneously reported the chase ended in Kansas. The chase ended in Savannah, Missouri.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Kansas police chase lasts 2 hours
A motorist driving on four flat tires led police on a two-hour pursuit through parts of Kansas and Missouri
ATCHISON, Kan. — A motorist driving on four flat tires led police on a two-hour pursuit in parts of Kansas and Missouri before his arrest.
The News-Press Now reports the chase began early Thursday in northeast Kansas’ Atchison County when officers attempted to stop a pickup truck on a warrant with several felony violations.
Police say the suspect later drove into neighboring Missouri, through St. Joseph and toward Savannah. St. Joseph police laid a spike strip that blew out all four tires of the suspect’s vehicle.
Police say the pursuit ended in Savannah, Missouri, where the vehicle veered into a ditch. Officers found drugs and three loaded weapons in the vehicle.
The suspect was taken to a hospital because officers believe he ingested several grams of methamphetamine prior to the arrest. Police say the suspect will be jailed after his hospital evaluation.
