Troopers identify two men killed in K-10 crossover accident

Operation 100 News report.

Updated: 9:19 p.m..

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after two people were killed in a head-on accident on Kansas Highway 10 in De Soto.

The accident was reported shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday in the eastbound lanes of K-10, east of Kill Creek Road.

Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the scene to report two vehicles with heavy damage.

Johnson County Med-Act reported two people dead at the scene.

Both eastbound lanes of the highway were closed, with traffic being diverted to Kill Creek Road. All lanes reopened to traffic at 6:15 a.m..

Troopers say, 45-year-old, Johnnie Royce Jackson of Kansas City, Missouri, was driving his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado westbound in the eastbound lanes of K-10 after crossing the grassy center median. The wrong way truck then crashed nearly head-on into an eastbound 2013 Toyota Avalon. The Toyota was being driven by, 20-year-old, Robert Anthony Zevenbergen of Kansas City, Kansas.

An accident report says Jackson was not wearing a seat-belt and was ejected from the truck. Zevenbergen was properly restrained and had to be extricated from his car.

Trooper Howard Dickinson says the crash was not survivable because of the force of two vehicles traveling at 70 mph and crashing into each other.

The Kansas Highway Patrol continues to investigate if alcohol played a role in the accident's cause.

Early morning car chase and Lawrence woman critically injured in overnight crash

Lawrence Police were involved in a very short car chase around 2:15 this morning. The chase began southbound on Harper Street near E. 21st Terrace. The officer in pursuit reported that the driver signaled before he turned eastbound onto E. 23rd Street. The chase ended quickly when the driver pulled into his own driveway in the 1900 block of E. 23rd Street, with Police right behind him. Officers conducted a felony car stop and the man was taken into custody without further incident.

Douglas County booking logs show the driver to be a 33-year-old, Lawrence man. He now faces charges for OUI, attempt to elude, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also new this morning, the Kansas Highway Patrol continues to investigate after a 28-year-old Lawrence woman was struck by a vehicle on Interstate 435 near Kansas Highway 10 in Lenexa. More on this accident, including her name can be found on the Operation 100 News website.

    December 17th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

    For those who follow Operation 100 News on Twitter, you are probably already aware of this but, for everyone else. I recently changed my coverage hours to begin at midnight and end at 5 a.m.. More information on this change can be found here.

    Law Enforcement in Douglas County was on high alert following two Topeka Police Officers being shot and killed in the line of duty last night. The suspect was involved in a six hour standoff with local, state and federal law enforcement in Topeka. The standoff came to an end after tactical teams fired tear gas into the structure and shots were exchanged. Medics transported the suspect away from the scene in very critical condition. More on this story can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

    Around 3 a.m., a Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy spotted a sport utility vehicle at a high rate of speed, driving into oncoming traffic on Kansas Highway 10. The SUV was first seen around De Soto, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes. The Deputy tailed the vehicle from the correct side of the highway and reported speeds near 100 miles per hour. Douglas County Deputies attempted to throw spike strips in front of the suspects vehicle. The driver managed to avoid the spike strips and came to a stop on his own near milepost 10. Deputies from both agencies conducted a felony car stop and took the driver into custody. Eudora Township Fire and LDCFM medics were called to the scene for some minor lacerations that the subject had sustained in his arrest. Eudora Township canceled the medic unit after learning that the suspect was refusing treatment. The suspect was taken into custody by Johnson County Deputies.

    Lawrence Officers responded on a report of suspicious activity in the 1000 block of W. 24th Street shortly after 4 a.m.. Officers contacted a woman in the area. That woman was eventually taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. She faces additional charges for Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

    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.
