Linn County Police Pursuit

On September 03, 2021 at 11:35am a Linn County Sheriff’s Deputy was working a KDOT traffic grant on US 69 Highway near the 81 mile marker. The intent of the grant is to quail erratic or impaired drivers leading up to the Labor Day weekend.

The Deputy initiated a traffic stop on a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, the subject in the vehicle failed to yield to the Deputies emergency equipment. A chase ensued, the 50 year old male driver from Kansas City, Missouri led Deputies from Linn County into  Bourbon County then into Vernon County, Missouri. They came back to Linn County and then back to Bourbon County where the driver of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu eventually crashed into a ditch in the area of Ft. Scott, Ks. This was only after the driver of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu had committed multiple traffic violations and evaded two sets of tire deflation devises. For most of the chase the driver was at regular highway speeds and was just obstinate to Law Enforcement. Toward the end of the chase the driver was operating at speeds over 100 miles per hour.

Agencies assisting with the chase are the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Highway Patrol, Vernon County Sheriff’s Office and Ft. Scott Police Department. The chase ended nearly an hour after it started, with no damages to patrol cars and no injuries to any involved. This subject was apprehended without further incident due to many teams of Law Enforcement Officers working together. Since this chase was in three counties and two states, Linn County Sheriff’s Dispatchers were busy coordinating with agencies about the region to get everyone in place to assist.   

The driver is currently held in the Linn County Jail awaiting formal charges.

Linn County Crash

On September 02, 2021 at 3:21pm, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call stating a pick up truck and motorcycle had crashed at Kansas Highway 7 and Kansas Highway 152.

Initial injuries were reported to occupants of the motorcycle, the injuries appeared to be serious involving head trauma and compound fractures of extremities. Linn County Sheriff’s Deputies, Linn County Fire and American Medical Response were all dispatched to the scene. Emergency responders soon arrived on the scene of the crash and assessed the situation, confirming the seriousness of the injuries. An air ambulance was dispatched at that time to begin its travel to Linn County to assist with the scene and transport. Emergency responders began treating patients at the scene and learned that a citizen(s) / passerby(s) had already started treatment of an occupant of the motorcycle. The occupant was bleeding badly and the citizens without hesitation noticed this trauma and reacted. The citizens performed a life saving maneuver securing a tourniquet to the occupant to control bleeding, they used a belt and a stick to stop the loss of blood, tying off the occupants upper leg. This action most likely saved the life of the crash victim.

The crash is still under investigation by Linn County Deputies and will be complete in the next few days where more information will be available.
