U.S. 169 northbound shut down after slow-speed chase

Posted: Updated:

It was perhaps the slowest conclusion to a police chase in recent Kansas City history, but the aftermath had U.S. 169 northbound shut down.

The chase ended just before 4:30 p.m. The driver exited the vehicle, and was taken into custody without incident.

This is just north of Interstate 435.

Undercover officers asked for the vehicle to be pursued at 4:10 p.m. Tuesday. This began on I-435 near Front Street. Officers said the Silverado pickup was driving fast and erratically.

Speeds reached 100 mph before the chase ended on U.S. 169 near 124th Street.

Police have yet to say what led them to chase the driver.
