Police seek information about Tuesday crash at 19th and Haskell

September 18, 2008


Lawrence Police are looking to speak with witnesses of an injury accident that occurred about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.

Three vehicles were involved in a crash at the intersection. A 27-year-old male driver was injured.

Two of the vehicles, a 1999 green Ford Ranger and a 1994 Toyota Camry, crashed in the intersection and the Camry then struck another car, a 1996 Honda Accord.

The investigating officer wasn't able to determine if a traffic violation occurred, according to a Lawrence police accident report.

"Lawrence Police would like to speak to anyone who might have witnessed the accident, but have not already been contacted by an officer," said Sgt. Bill Cory, police spokesman.

Witnesses can call police at 832-7559, he said.

The driver of the Toyota Camry, Monroe Anthony, was cited for driving with a suspended license and having no insurance, the report said, and taken to the hospital for a cut he received in the crash.

Jacob Thibodeau, the 31-year-old driver of the Ford Ranger, and Elizabeth Diehl, the 69-year-old driver of the Honda Accord, were not injured or ticketed, according to police.

Translation: Monroe has legal issues around his driving and lied about running the light, so the cops need witnesses so they can take Monroe's license away.That's my speculation.

If everyone is who I think they are in this story, then one of the drivers also has several friends in the LPD.

I guess if everyones said they had the green light or everyones story was different it would be difficult to determing who was at fault.

No light at that intersection

I have always felt that someone without a license should automatically be guilty since they should not have been driving in the first place (excluding any other circumstances with the other driver(s)). Of course, with three cars involved it makes that thought a little more difficult...
