Police chase ends with crashing Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade route


The Chiefs are having their Super Bowl victory parade Wednesday.

But leading up to the parade, something pretty wild happened: There was a police car chase that ended in a crash on the parade route.

Check out the videos here:
A car reportedly drove through the barricades along the parade route, which is a scary situation. One person is in custody, and it’s not clear if anyone was injured.

Here’s The Kansas City Star with more:
Hours before the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade was to begin on Grand Boulevard in downtown Kansas City Wednesday, a car broke through barriers and led police on a chase down most of the length of the parade route. The green sedan broke through the barrier on the north end of the end of the parade route in the River Market area, police said.

Officers along the route were immediately alerted. The pursuit ended at Grand and Pershing Road, near the south end of the route. There were no reported injuries, police said. Police are investigating whether the driver was impaired, said Sgt. Jake Becchina, a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department. The suspect’s motive was unknown. The chase was not thought to be related to any act of terrorism, Becchina said. Police searched the vehicle and found no weapons or explosives.

Chiefs fans on Wednesday are celebrating the team’s first championship since the 1969 season. The Chiefs stormed back to beat the 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named MVP.
