High-Speed Chase Into Kansas Leads To The Arrest Of Two Teenagers
Two teenagers, both aged 15-years-old, were arrested early Wednesday after a high speed chase that started in Jefferson County in southeast Nebraska and ended in a neighboring county in Kansas.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the pursuit was related to a stolen pickup out of Lancaster County.
The pursuit began around midnight, about 4 miles north of Fairbury, and ended about 9 miles into Washington County in northern Kansas. During the pursuit, the vehicle crossed speeds of 90 mph while traveling along Nebraska and Kansas Highways 15. Fairbury police and deputies from Jefferson County and Washington County Sheriff offices were involved in the chase.
The truck veered off Kansas Highway 15 and was traveling in a reckless and erratic manner before it came to a halt.
Two teenagers traveling in the truck ran off after coming to a stop, but were later taken into custody. They were treated for minor injuries.
The teens were arrested and faced multiple charges including suspicion of felony flight to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving, possession of a stolen vehicle and aiding and abetting a felony.
