Deputies located the vehicle but while waiting for backup the car took off and headed northbound on K-196. Officers tried to stop the car near Whitewater but the vehicle headed westbound into Harvey County at speeds in excess of 160 mph.

Officers lost the vehicle and called off the chase around 12:43 p.m.

The car was spotted again in the area of K-196 and K-254 around 1:15pm. Another attempt was made to stop the vehicle but it took off again.

The Nissan lost control in the area of Turkey Creek Rd and US-400. Two males jumped out of the car and took off on foot. The men were caught and arrested.

The license plate on the car was registered to a Johnson County vehicle.

There were no injuries to anyone and the only damage was minimal damage to fences in the area where the car lost control.

The Nissan GT-R is a high-powered car that generally sells around $100,000. Sample photo from Twitter below.
