Posted: Updated:

Police have one man in custody who was involved in two accidents Monday afternoon, one involving a police car.

The incident started about 12:45 p.m. near the intersection of State Avenue and Meadowlark Lane, when the man was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

Two people in another vehicle suffered minor injuries in that accident.

A Kansas City, KS, police officer saw the accident and noticed the driver drove off from the scene.  The officer pursued the car.

But the short chase ended just several blocks away at North 61st Street and State Avenue.

It was at that location the police car was also damaged, but it is not yet known how that accident happened. The officer was not injured in the incident.

The officer took the suspect driver into custody.
