Police later found the car about a mile down the road crashed into a tree. The driver was still in the vehicle, but the passenger had taken off on foot. He was arrested a short time later. Both men were taken to a hospital for treatment. Police said that charges would be filed, and were not sure at this point if drugs or alcohol played a part in the incident.
Nothing good can ever come from fleeing police in pursuit. Not only are you going to make your case worse in front of a judge but you begin to endager the lives of everyone involved: yourself and the officers involved not to mention the innocent Kansas City motorists on the road as well.
At the Roswold Law Group, our Kansas City Accident and personal Injury Lawyers would like to remind you that attempting to flee the police never works out. It only increases the risk of danger. Although the incident did end in a crash, no innocent bystanders were injured. Police chases through our Kansas and Missouri streets are often deadly, putting innocent lives at stake. If you are asked to stop by authorities, pull over as soon as it is safe to do so. Let's keep our metro streets safe!
