Suspected Shoplifters Killed in Crash

KSAL StaffNovember 11, 2016

Authorities say two suspected shoplifters in a stolen car were killed in south-central Kansas when they crashed into a tractor-trailer during a chase by police.

Police say the crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. Friday near Hutchinson. The victims’ names were not immediately released.

Police say three people who used fraudulent credit cards to buy $1,100 worth of merchandise from a Walmart in Newton sped away in two vehicles.

Investigators say two of the suspects in one car later led officers on a chase involving speeds of up to 115 mph.

That car later swerved out of control when the driver tried to avoid tire-flattening strips police had set out on the highway, and the car crashed slid sideways into a tractor-trailer that had stopped for a roadblock.
