Around 12:30 a.m., Troopers attempted to stop a speeding vehicle, sparking a nearly 40 mile pursuit.

The pursuit started in Wyandotte County near Interstate 435 and Interstate 70 when Kansas Turnpike Authority Troopers tried to stop a Ford Taurus that was seen in excess of 90 miles per hour on the interstate. Troopers pursued the vehicle southbound on Interstate 435 into Johnson County, through Shawnee and into Lenexa.

The suspect exited at 95th Street in Lenexa, wound through a business park and then back to I-435.

Speeds accelerated to nearly 100 miles per hour while northbound on I-435 and back into Shawnee, where the vehicle exited at Midland Drive and took off westbound. Troopers lost sight of the vehicle on Midland but, Shawnee officers spotted it westbound on Shawnee Mission Parkway. The vehicle then turned northbound on Monticello and then eastbound on Johnson Drive.

Shawnee police attempted to spike the vehicle's tires as it passed Barker Road, however the attempt was unsuccessful.

The vehicle continued back to Interstate 435 where it went southbound. The chase stayed on I-435 all the way to Kansas City, Missouri. At the state line, Kansas Troopers ended their pursuit and Kansas City, Missouri officers took over. Those officers reported that the vehicle exited at Holmes and then continued north to Bannister Road, where officers lost sight of it.

At last check, this vehicle has not been located.

The chase covered about around 40 miles in approximately 35 minutes. No law enforcement officers were injured and no patrol vehicles were damaged.

Another chase Saturday morning started in Lawrence, Kansas after an aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer. That chase also went into Kansas City, Missouri where three people were taken into custody.
