A man has been charged in connection to a 45-minute police pursuit in Kansas City. 

Ryan Lilly, 32, was charged with third-degree assault, tampering with a motor vehicle, resisting a lawful stop and first-degree property damage in connection. 

Two people were taken in custody on Monday following a police pursuit that wrapped up on Wornall Road and Interstate 435.

A woman was also arrested near 95th Street and Monrovia in Lenexa.

Police on both sides of the state line were in pursuit of the vehicle after it struck an occupied police vehicle. 

Investigators say Lilly was driving a stolen truck when he spotted marked patrol cars. Police say Lilly reversed into a tree, then hit the patrol vehicle, pushing it out of the way. 

No one was hurt after the vehicle was struck at 34th and Lawndale. 

The pursuit began in Kansas City and crossed into Johnson County, KS. 

It then went thru Merriam, Overland Park and back to I-435 on the Missouri side. 

Officers attempted to use stop sticks but weren’t successful.
