The Chiefs Super Bowl parade started with a bang in Kansas City when police used the PIT maneuver to stop someone from driving into the parade route.
Dramatic video of the incident shows a car racing toward the crowd as police vehicles rush to intercept. Finally, the police cars plow into the offender’s vehicle and spin it to a stop.

As soon as the errant car came to a stop, dozens of officers swarmed in to apprehend the driver.
The number of people not scurrying quickly away from a car chase within close proximity is a little disturbing. https://t.co/I3cIXBjQMa

According to TMZ, the police reported that no one was injured. They also do not think that the driver had any nefarious motives — such as terrorism — and that they suspect the driver was drunk or otherwise impaired.
“As far as we can tell, there are no injuries,” a police dept. spokesman said. “Great work by our officers!”
The Kansas City police report that the parade route was secured after the car was stopped.
