October 3rd Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
Another quiet Monday morning in Douglas County.
Police in Lawrence handled a few of the usual disturbances and vehicle stops. I did not hear a single noise complaint after 10 p.m..
LPD responded on a reported hit and run accident near Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive. It sounded like the reporting party said the suspect struck a parked vehicle and then fled the scene. Police located that vehicle not to far away, near W 24th Street and Kasold Drive. It did not sound as though that driver was taken into custody or cited for leaving the accident.
Construction crews will be beginning their work on the $4.3 million project on K-10 from the east city limits of Lawrence to the Douglas/Johnson County Line at 9 a.m. this morning. More information on this project can be found here.
The American Red Cross reminds the public that October is Fire Prevention month. Sadly, two young children have lost their lives due to fires in Kansas this month. The first was in Kansas City on Saturday morning and the second was Saturday night in Overland Park. More information on the Overland Park fire can be found here.
The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.
Some of the activity blogged above was reported as it was unfolding by Operation 100 News on our Twitter page. Learn more about Operation 100 News and how to receive breaking news updates.
