KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Overland Park, Kansas police and Kansas Highway Patrol troopers captured one person and continued to search for another after a police chase across the state line Thursday morning.

Around 7:30 a.m., Kansas City, Missouri police saw a Chevrolet pickup truck pulling a U-Haul driving erratically near Interstate 435 south and Truman Road.

Officers began following the suspected drunk driver as the truck entered into Kansas and exited onto Nall Avenue.

KCPD ceased their pursuit at that time, and Kansas authorities were called to the area to try to find the truck.

At about 8:30 a.m., it was located, abandoned, in the 10000 block of Horton Drive in Overland Park, police said.

Two schools, John Diemer Elementary and Indian Woods Middle School, went under a soft lockdown as authorities searched the area for the suspects.
