Police searching for two men after car chase

September 15, 2013


Lawrence police are looking for two white males after a car chase that ended shortly before 11 p.m. tonight.

Police attempted to pull over a vehicle that failed to yield near 15th and Harper Streets, but the car sped away, Sgt. Casey Cooper said. Police chased the car out of Lawrence onto dirt roads east of town before the car turned back into Lawrence. The two suspects fled on foot after a spike strip was used to stop the vehicle at the corner of 15th and Lindenwood lane.

Cooper said is not clear why the two men fled. The investigation is ongoing.

What kind of car? To whom is it registered? The public might be of assistance in locating these individuals.

Pretty serious offense to start a car chase: failure to yield. Glad no one was hurt.

It's a wonder the car being chased eastbound didn't crash a short distance beyond the railroad crossing on E. 15th St. That's a super-gnarly crossing, even at 20mph. Maybe they "ramped" it?
