Two suspects are in custody after a car chase occurred along the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade route on Wednesday in Missouri.

After a car was able to bust through a barrier and make its way onto the route for the celebrating Super Bowl winners, the Kansas City Police Department was able to stop the vehicle with what they call a “PIT” (precision immobilization technique) maneuver.

No one was injured during the incident, primarily because the car broke onto the parade route in the morning, hours before the festivities began.

“A vehicle broke through the parade barrier on the north side of the route at 8:12 a.m.,” KCPD said in a statement. “All officers on the route were immediately alerted. Clay County Sheriff’s Deputies assisting KCPD deployed Stop Sticks, which the vehicle struck. The vehicle proceeded south down the route to where it turned at Pershing and was headed for the crowd. Multiple police cars were prepared to block it. Officers then used tactical vehicle intervention, also known as the PIT maneuver, to stop the suspect car on Pershing,”

The driver of the vehicle is under investigation for impairment.
