Mostly abandoned Kansas City building collapses

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A vehicle involved in a police chase slammed into a mostly abandoned building in downtown Kansas City, causing a partial collapse.

Local media reports the accident occurred Thursday morning and the female driver of the car was able to get out of the car. The building reportedly was being used to store cars or as a parking garage and police don’t believe anyone was inside.

The northwest corner of the building collapsed after the vehicle rammed into it.

Further information on what prompted the chase was not immediately available.

Public Works employees were to treat water that was causing some ice due to a damaged nearby fire hydrant.
