RENO COUNTY, Kan. - Two men are dead after a pursuit and a car crash Friday morning in Reno County; the scene is on U.S. Highway 50 near Buhler/Haven Road, to the east-southeast of Hutchinson.

It began when police officers in Newton were alerted to multiple shopliftings at Walmart. A stolen car with two suspects was driving west-bound on Highway 50.

Officers tried to pull over the vehicle, leading to a pursuit with speeds at times near 115 miles per hour.

Trying to avoid "stop sticks", the suspects swerved, hitting a stopped semi-truck. Both people in the car died at the scene.
