Local News

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Authorities are looking for the driver of a stolen car that led them on a chase Tuesday morning, and crashed with another car near downtown Topeka.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers spotted a stolen silver car around 11:29 a.m. at Southwest 12th Street and Gage Boulevard and gave pursuit. The driver fled the wrong way down 12th, so the troopers called off the chase due to the danger to other cars.

A white Oldsmobile then hit the stolen car when it went through the intersection of Southwest Huntoon and Polk Street. A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper on scene said the occupants of the Oldsmobile had minor injuries and did not go to the hospital.
