Or just drive to another town to have the work done. Police won't check KC or Topeka.

"Police won't check KC or Topeka." What makes you think that? Some on here may not like the LKPD, but I know they are one of the best Police agencies in this part of the country.

MichaelJ, you are out of your mind. LPD is the laughing stock of police departments in the midwest. Ask a cop from another town.

There's a woman in the hospital in serious condition after this accident. She's a mom. Sending lots of thoughts and good vibes for your full recovery, Krystyn.

@KRichards ... I don't remember ever seeing that question answered. I suppose it's impolite to even ask it. It seems like there are sidewalks on both sides of the street in that area, though I guess they could have been snow-covered or something. I don't know ... anybody else know? btw ... I was driving last night, dropped someone off, and was leaving the parking lot when I spotted a man about 5 feet from my car, walking in the street in dark pants, dark jacket, dark stocking cap ... He seemed to come out of nowhere and I thought to myself that if I had been looking the other direction at that moment I might have turned right into him. Even though I would have stopped if I had hit him, that wouldn't have kept me from hitting him ... I still get chills thinking about it.
Everybody be careful out there.

Hey KR, you really think you will get the full story from the LJW? ROTFL! If we are lucky one of the witnesses will get on here and let us know what happened...

Good Luck Krystyn, we are thinking about you, and hope you recover soon...
