November 16th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up
At 2:11 this morning, Lawrence and KU Police checked the area of the intersection of 19th and Naismith Drive for at least two reports of a large group, 10-15 people, fighting. Officers arrived in the area and were able to locate a group of people walking through a parking lot near Naismith Hall. However, none of the people in that group were fighting and were not interested in reporting a previous fight. Needless to say, no injuries or arrests related to the incident.
Police and Fire Medical crews were called to the 900 block of Mississippi Street on reports of a single vehicle accident just before 2:40 a.m.. A medic unit arrived on the scene to report one vehicle was on its side in the middle of the roadway. The driver of the vehicle was still inside the car. The fire department had to help the male driver from the vehicle, he was not injured. After further investigation, Police arrested the driver. He was booked into the county jail on charges of No Insurance and OUI.
Police also responded on another minor injury accident about an hour later in the 600 block of Louisiana Street. Very few details were available regarding this accident. Fire Medical crews did not respond to this scene, as the people involved refused treatment.
At 7:10 this morning, dispatchers reported a possible injury accident on Highway 56 near mile marker 428, west of Baldwin City. Callers to 911 reported a school bus as being involved in the accident. Baldwin City Police and a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper arrived on the accident about three minutes later. The scene of the accident was said to be between E 1300 Road and E 1400 Road. All Fire and EMS units were allowed to disregard the call at 7:18, after it was confirmed that there were no injuries.
None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
