Fatality: Tonganoxie resident killed in motorcycle accident A 21-year-old Tonganoxie man died late Tuesday night from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident north of Tonganoxie. William H. Chrisman was traveling southbound on 219th Street, a half mile north of Parallel Road in Leavenworth County, when his motorcycle left the road and struck a barbed-wire fence, according to a Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Department accident report. Chrisman was thrown from his motorcycle and suffered fatal injuries, the report said. The Tonganoxie Township Fire Department, Leavenworth County EMS, Tonganoxie Police Department and Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Department responded to the accident, which occurred at 11:50 p.m. The sheriff’s department continues to investigate the accident. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.129 a gallon at Site, 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue.

A 6-year-old girl was still missing Wednesday after a boating accident that killed three other people. Nine people were aboard the boat when it capsized Tuesday at John Martin Reservoir, Bent County Sheriff Nate Valdez said. None of the victims was wearing a life jacket when found, he said. Valdez identified the dead as a 6-month-old boy, a 3- or 4-year-old girl and a 51-year-old woman, all of Syracuse, Kan. People using radar to find fish were asked to aid an aerial search for the girl, and divers also were looking for the girl. __________________________ Fire in Dumpster caused Tuesday night apartment fire A fire that started in a Dumpster Tuesday night spread to an apartment building, causing an estimated $50,000 damage and displacing the occupants of one apartment. The cause of the fire still was under investigation Wednesday night. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical responded to the blaze at 10:28 p.m. at 440 Fla., according to a press release prepared by Battalion Chief Bill Stark. Flames were visible on the exterior siding of a three-unit, two-story apartment building, and fire had extended into the attic of one apartment. Approximately 25 personnel handled the fire, which was brought under control in about 20 minutes. No injuries were reported by firefighters or occupants, though the building was occupied at the time of the alarm. The Red Cross was called in to assist the displaced occupants of one apartment. All other tenants were allowed to return to their units.
