KANSAS CITY — A police chase ended in a car crash Wednesday morning, Feb. 5, along the parade route celebrating the Chiefs’ in downtown Kansas City.

The crash occurred when a police car used a pursuit intervention technique maneuver, a tactic that forces a fleeing car to turn sideways and lose control.

According to a KCPD release, a car broke through the parade barrier on the north side of the parade route just after 8 a.m. Clay County Sheriff's deputies, who were downtown to assist local police with the parade, deployed stop sticks that the car struck.

Police took two suspects into custody. No injuries were reported.
