Deer leads to four-car accident on K-10

Two persons injured, including Lawrence man

May 12, 2006


K-10 east of Ridgeview Road

A deer on the highway led to a four-vehicle wreck this morning on Kansas Highway 10 that sent a Lawrence man and one other person to the hospital.

The wreck happened shortly after 6:30 a.m. on K-10 east of Ridgeview Road when a 27-year-old Olathe man, Dustin D. Dade, slammed on the brakes of his 2004 Kia and struck a deer.

He was rear-ended by a 1989 Ford driven by Michael D. Wright, 25, of Perry. Wright, who was wearing a seat belt, wasn't injured, but a passenger, 26-year-old James L. Osburn Jr. of Lawrence, wasn't wearing a seat belt and was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with injuries.

A third driver, 30-year-old Stephanie A. Longhorn of Olathe, was injured after she tried to maneuver her 2005 Dodge to avoid the wreck. She was wearing a seat belt but was taken to Olathe Medical Center.

Also, a 2002 Honda station wagon driven by 65-year-old Marilyn Wehr of Olathe was hit by flying debris, but Wehr was not injured.

The deer was also upset about our immigration policy. He was running from the Angry Doe Police.

Frankzappa, I'm kinda inclined to choose being in a minor traffic accident over listening to Bob Fescoe for 3 hours every morning.
