KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Police Department said one person is in critical condition following an overnight wrong-way crash that led to a police chase.

Officers responded to 11th and Grand Boulevard on a disturbance call and a white Fiat 500 with two people inside left the scene at a high rate of speed. Police say they were informed that the vehicle almost ran over a pedestrian and a person was armed with a gun.
