The vehicle that struck the pedestrian left the scene and was located a short distance away.

Sources tell Operation 100 News that the injured man is a 27-year-old and that he was involved in an argument while standing in the opening of a passenger's door. The driver of the vehicle began reversing and the open door knocked the man to the ground. He was not believed to have been struck by any part of the vehicle, other than the open door. The victim has reportedly been drinking and possibly had re-aggravated a previous back injury.

There were reportedly several witnesses to the accident.

Consecutive mornings with a vehicle pursuit in Lawrence

Monday into Tuesday pursuit

A 22-year-old, Baldwin City man led Lawrence Police on a high speed car chase that ended in a brief foot chase on the Haskell University campus.

The chase started around 11:50 p.m. Monday near 22nd Street and Louisiana when a Lawrence officer attempted to make a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet Impala. The driver sped away from the officer, eastbound on 21st Street at a high rate of speed. The officer gave chase and followed the vehicle for a short time before losing sight of the suspect vehicle near 21st Street and Vermont Street.

Other officers responded to the area to help look for the vehicle. One of those officers spotted the vehicle driving in excess of 100 MPH while southbound on Barker Avenue approaching 23rd Street. That officer reported skid marks on the pavement near 22nd and Barker.

Officers moved onto the Haskell University campus and began setting up a perimeter to box in the vehicle. The vehicle was found crashed and abandoned in a grassy common area just north of Oneida Avenue. Officers found that the vehicle had struck several objects, including a sign for one of the buildings and a light pole.

The man spotted a Lawrence Police patrol car spotlighting the area and took off on foot northbound towards the stadium. Officers apprehended him about 200 yards south of the stadium at about 12:05 a.m.. Tuesday. Officers backtracked through the area and located several locations where the vehicle left the roadway and caused damage to property.

Medics eventually transported the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital to be checked out after he became nauseous and vomited. No other injuries were reported.

He has since been booked into the Douglas County jail and faces a slew of charges including; flee/attempt to elude, reckless driving, driving while suspended, possession of a controlled substance and several counts of leaving the scene and failure to report an accident.

Wednesday morning pursuit

This morning's pursuit involved a 23-year-old, Lawrence man who attempted to flee from officers in a vehicle. Just after 12:40 a.m., an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop near W. 7th and S. Michigan Streets. Instead of stopping, the driver turned off all of the vehicle's lights and quickly turned into the Hawks Pointe apartment complex in the 1400 block of W. 7th Street. Officers kept up and were able to apprehend the man before he had a chance to run from the vehicle. The driver has now been booked into the Douglas County jail and faces charges of flee/attempt to elude and driving while intoxicated. No injuries were reported.

Fuel spill in Jefferson County

Emergency crews from at least two counties responded on a diesel fuel spill late Friday night. The scene is the BP station, located at 101 E. Lake Street. The station is on the southeast corner of Lake and Union Streets in the heart of McLouth.

Outside of McLouth, Lake Street is known as Kansas Highway 16.

A diesel tanker was reportedly resupplying the gas station's diesel tank when 1,200 to 1,300 gallons of diesel spilled onto the ground. Crews reported that some of the fuel had ran downhill and into storm drains. The spill was also reported to have "covered" at least one neighbor's backyard.

A caller to the Lawrence Journal-World said that "homes all around the area were being evacuated."

Emergency crews on the scene include; McLouth Police & Fire Department, Oskaloosa Fire Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Jefferson County Fire Districts 8 & 9, and Leavenworth County Emergency Management. An earlier report from the Lawrence Journal-World says that Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical was also involved on the call. The Kansas Division of Emergency Management has also been notified of the spill.

These crews are also being assisted by a private contractor, Haz-Mat Response Inc., of Olathe, Kansas.

An employee with Haz-Mat Response, Olathe, places a hose to suck up diesel fuel in a ditch Saturday near 106 E. Pearl St. in McLouth. A diesel tanker was resupplying a BP gas station's diesel tank Friday night at 101 E. Lake St., also known as Kansas Highway 16, when over a thousand gallons of diesel spilled onto the ground and into a nearby neighborhood. Residents of two homes on E. Pearl Street voluntarily evacuated their home because of the smell.

Not your ordinary Monday morning

Early Monday morning's are usually very quiet when it comes to significant police activity. Things weren't that way today with officers responding on three disturbances in less than an hour.

The first was reported to be several subjects being rowdy and possibly fighting at the Royal Crest Lanes, 933 Iowa Street, around 1:10 a.m.. Lawrence Police Department's call log show that a total of 12 units were eventually assigned to the call. Medics were also called to the scene to treat four people who had been exposed to OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) spray, otherwise known as pepper spray. A 19-year-old, Topeka man was arrested and faces a slew of charges including; battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of an others driver's license, assault on a law enforcement officer, obstruction of the legal process, two municipal failure to appear warrants and a Shawnee County failure to appear warrant. Booking records show that he is being held without bond by the order of the Topeka Police Department.

The next two disturbances both involved the same subject causing problems at the same address. Officers were first called to Playerz, 1910 Haskell Avenue, at 1:29 a.m., for two subjects fighting inside the business. When officers arrived the two men had separated and one was waiting for officers outside. Officers arrested one man for disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. The police department's website shows that seven units were assigned to the call. Medics also responded and treated one subject, at the scene, for a bloody nose.

Officers were called back to the Haskell Avenue address at 2:03 a.m. after an employee reported that the second man involved in the earlier disturbance had returned and was knocking on the door and windows. This time nine units show to be assigned to the call and the man is arrested but, only after he decided that it would be a good idea to batter one of the officers. The man now faces charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

At 2:08 a.m., Officers responded on a non-injury accident in the 1700 block of Tennessee Street. The male driver was arrested and now faces charges for OUI, no insurance and driving while suspended/revoked.

An officer on routine patrols also conducted a vehicle stop in the 1800 block of W 23rd Street. The driver was found to be intoxicated and was arrested. She now faces an OUI charge.

The majority of the disturbances occurred around closing time, up and down Massachusetts Street.

That person was said to have lost consciousness after being involved in a fight, his injuries were said to be serious. As of this report, no arrests have been made.

At 3:45 a.m., Police were called to Magic Lounge, 804 W. 24th Street, on reports of a large disturbance. One caller reported approximately 30 men fighting at the address. The caller believed that one of the men was carrying and had possibly displayed a handgun during the fight. Initially three officers were dispatched on the call, a total of seven units were eventually committed to the call. Those officers did not report any injuries or arrests.

With all of the car stops reported, the county booking log shows only one arrest for DWI. That arrest was made by the Sheriff's Office around 4:30 a.m. at 6th and Stoneridge.

Deputies also made three arrests at the same vehicle stop on K-10 near Eudora. One of the subjects faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge, the second subject faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge and is accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The third subject faces a charge for possession of stolen property.

The booking log only shows one arrest for Lawrence Police. That came shortly after midnight involving a 20-year-old Lawrence man who faces charges for criminal damage to property, possession/use of a fake Driver's License, and possession of alcohol by a minor.

5 arrests this morning in Douglas County; 3 for DWI/OUI related offenses.

Here is a look at some of the calls that Lawrence Police responded on this morning.

  • 5 Disturbance/Battery reports
  • 4 Car stops
  • 2 Noise complaints
  • 1 Trespassing complaint
  • 1 Indecent exposure complaint
  • 1 Criminal damage report

Most of this morning's disturbances were on the smaller side, two or three people fighting/arguing. The one exception to this came at an address that Lawrence Police are beginning to become familiar with lately. They were called around 1:20 a.m. to an apartment in the 3300 block of W 8th Street, following reports of an argument that was possibly escalating into a fight. A total of six units were eventually attached to the call. Officers spoke to the involved parties and after checking everyone involved for warrants, returned to service from the call without making any arrests. No injuries were reported. This same address and apartment number have been the location for at least two previous calls, in recent memory during my listening hours.

Aside from the three DWI/OUI related arrests, there were two other arrests. The first involved a domestic disturbance with one of the involved now facing charges of domestic battery and violation of a protective order. The second arrest involved a theft in the 1300 block of Tennessee Street. That suspect now faces charges of theft and interference with the duties of an officer.

None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

November 22nd Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

At 11:30 p.m., a Lawrence Police Officer attempted to stop a vehicle which was traveling westbound on Clinton Parkway. The vehicle failed to yield to the officer, who then gave chase. Officers reported the suspect vehicle was westbound on Clinton Parkway at nearly 70 miles per hour. The chase then turned southbound on Wakarusa, and then westbound on Stoneback Drive, ending in a cul-de-sac. The male driver ran from the vehicle through a backyard in the 4900 block of Stoneback Drive and then into a wooded area between Clinton Parkway and the South Lawrence Trafficway (K-10 bypass). Officers set up a perimeter in the area to search for the man, who officers had already identified. The suspect was said to have a warrant for his arrest. Officers eventually caught up with the man, who now faces a number of additional charges. In addition to the outstanding Municipal Warrant, new charges include; Possession of a Controlled Substance, Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Criminal Carrying of a Weapon (concealed), and Criminal Disposal of Explosives. No injuries were reported and no other details were immediately available.
