August 31st Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
KUPD reported making a OUI related arrest shortly after 2 a.m., near the intersection of 23rd and Ousdahl Road.
Officers in Lawrence were called to the intersection of 11th and Tennessee Street at 3:43 this morning for a report of two male subjects who were seen throwing empty kegs at passing vehicles, damaging one of the vehicles. Police located the two men quickly, both were arrested and face charges of Disorderly Conduct and Criminal Damage to Property.
At 6:55 a.m., Emergency crews from Eudora and Lawrence were dispatched on a single vehicle accident at the intersection of N 1000 Road and E 2000 Road, southwest of Eudora. A Police Officer was the first to arrive on scene and report the vehicle had rolled onto it's top, pinning the driver's arm under the vehicle. That officer also reported the driver to be in critical condition. LDCFM rescue crews worked for about 15 minutes to free the driver from the crashed vehicle. A LifeStar helicopter was dispatched and responded to the scene however, after landing the helicopter was disregarded. The injured person was transported by a LDCFM Medic unit to Overland Park Regional Medical Center. No other information regarding the driver or the accident was immediately available. I contacted my reporting partners at the Lawrence Journal-World to inform them of this story, that report can be found here.
At 7:50 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the 1000 block of N 3rd Street to take a report on a non-injury hit and run accident. The victim was able to give police a vehicle description and license plate number. As of this report, it did not sound like officers have located the suspect vehicle.
