Pursuit leads to crash in Atchison Co

(KNZA)--An early Sunday morning pursuit that began in Jackson County lead to a crash in Atchison County that injured two people.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a news release, said a deputy attempted to stop a 2004 Saturn Ion around 5:00 in the area of 254th and U.S 75 Highway for traffic infractions.

Morse said the vehicle failed to yield to the deputy and fled eastbound on 254th Road to W Road.  The vehicle continued north on W Road to K-9 Highway then east through the city of Whiting into Atchison County.

Morse said the vehicle failed to negotiate the curves at U.S. 159 Highway and left the roadway where it overturned about three miles north of Muscotah.

He said both occupants sustained injuries and were transported by ambulance to area hospitals for evaluation.

The driver of the vehicle was identitifed as 56-year-old Robert Neal Kirk, Jr., of Topeka, formerly of Mayetta.

The passenger was identified as 49-year-old Ronald Snowbarger, of St. George.

The Kansas Highway Patrol investigated the wreck.

 The pursuit remains under investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
