For a second time in a week, a driver led police on a wild chase through Kansas City, and it was all captured live.
The police chase began with a routine stop, but ended with a closing of an on-ramp on Interstate 70 just off Blue Ridge Cut-off.
Police said it was a wild ride, but it could have been worse.
It wasn't a high-speed chase, although at times it got a little out of control. Highway speeds were at 70 mph as police blocked exits.
Officers tried to stop the driver about 11:20 a.m. in Independence during a routine stop for a suspected stolen vehicle. During the traffic stop, officers learned the driver of the stolen Honda Passport also had felony warrants.
The driver took off leading police into Kansas City, then back into Independence. Officers threw down stop sticks into the path of the vehicle and one of them was dragged behind it with the suspect continuing to drive.
After about 40 minutes, the chase finally came to an end as the driver lost control and spun just next to the Truman Sports Complex at I-70 and Blue Ridge Cut-off. At least one of the tires on the suspect vehicle was gone.
The suspect surrendered, but the condition of the car shows he wasn't about to give up until the car couldn't go any farther.
The chase also crippling an Independence patrol unit that had to be towed away.
After talking to witnesses, police said there was some concern the driver might be suicidal, but he surrendered with no problems.
The chase went on streets including Blue Ridge Boulevard, Truman Road, I-435 and Sterling Avenue.
Independence police credit the Kansas City, MO, Police Department for blocking all the highway exits and keeping the driver out of the neighborhoods.
