Stolen pickup truck driver in custody after long ride on Kansas City subway – KMBC Kansas City | CarTailz

The driver of a stolen pickup truck was arrested in Kansas City Wednesday night after fleeing police and riding the subway for about two hours. The vehicle, a white truck, was reported stolen from Kansas City. News Chopper 9 first saw the vehicle near Highway 71 and Bruce Watkins Drive. Police officers were not involved in an active pursuit of the vehicle but appeared to be in pursuit of the truck and the police helicopter. The pickup was spotted driving at high speed across yards and intersections. The driver fled south on Interstate 435 and took Interstate 49 to Grandview before driving back north to Kansas City. The driver continued driving and eventually pulled into a parking lot near 103rd Street and the state line just after 6 p.m Road. “To think it took almost three hours is almost unreal,” Sheena said of the stolen truck that was so reckless. Then officers saw the man pull over in the Price Chopper parking lot. I saw the helicopter feed on Twitter, so I was like, ‘Hey, let’s try to find that,'” Ben Hayles said. Many people said they were amazed the truck hadn’t stopped sooner. Two of the pickup’s wheels were badly damaged. “I’m surprised he’s come this far given what you’re seeing,” Long said. Witnesses said the driver went off the road when the tires blew out. “We saw a puff of smoke at the exit just down the road,” said Ben Hayles. Witnesses said the grocery store was closed for a few minutes. There were concerns that the suspect might have entered. Police said the suspect went to the back where they took him into custody. “We came down, we saw the rice cart glad no one got hurt. The truck’s owners now have some answers. “I’m sorry for the owners. This is terrible for them,” said Shaina Falke. They are grateful that the police were able to take the suspect into custody. “It was cool to watch the whole thing, seeing them search the vehicle, looking after everyone’s safety, which is most important,” said Evan Hayles.

The truck lost two tires, but the driver kept going and eventually pulled up in a parking lot near 103rd Street and State Line Road just after 6 p.m

“To think it lasted almost three hours is almost unreal,” Sheena Long said.

“My mother watched the news and said there was a police chase at KMBC 9,” said Kieran Michaud.

Several people said they had to see it for themselves.

“I saw the helicopter feed on Twitter, so I was like, ‘Hey, let’s try to find this,'” said Ben Hayles.

Many people said they were amazed the truck didn’t stop sooner. Two of the pickup’s wheels were badly damaged.

“I’m surprised it’s come to this, given what you’re seeing,” Long said.
