The Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade left to a start no one expected on Wednesday– it kicked-off with a high-speed chase along the path.
Folks in Kansas City had already begun to line-up along the route Wednesday morning– the real parade wasn’t arranged to begin up until 12: 30 p.m. ET– as a silver sedan led authorities on a chase.
It was a truly wild site: cops worked to spin the car to a stop utilizing a PIT maneuver as parade-goers scrambled far from the chase.
Quickly after the chase went viral, Kansas City’s police department tweeted: “Two suspects in custody. Resume commemorating!”
Later, the department followed up with more info in a statement
” A lorry broke through the parade barrier on the north side of the path at 8: 12 a.m.,” authorities stated. “All officers on the route were instantly signaled.”
Cops stated it initially tried to stop the automobile by deflating its tires before utilizing the PIT maneuver to spin it out.
It seems the whole ordeal was just a strangely timed vehicle chase.
” The chauffeur is under examination for disability,” authorities said. “A search of the lorry revealed no weapons, and there were no signs of terrorist activity.
The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49 ers, 31-20, on Sunday to make the franchise’s first Super Bowl win in 50 years. Kansas City will finally get to celebrate, even if the party started in a really odd fashion.
” I simply believed this can’t be taking place,” parade attendee Shawn McMullen informed the Kansas City Star.
