Two injured in high speed crash through a Mass Street storefront

Updated: 11:48 p.m.

Operation 100 News report

Lawrence Police and Fire Medical crews responded on a serious car accident in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street early Saturday morning.

Crews were called about 3:10 a.m. on reports of a vehicle crashed through a storefront near 1029 Massachusetts Street, Pyramid Pizza.

Police arrived quickly and immediately reported injuries at 1025 Massachusetts Street, Strong's Antiques. Fire units arrived to confirm that one person was pinned in the vehicle and would need to be extricated. A second person was ejected from the vehicle.

Both people have serious injuries, including long bone (arms/legs) fractures.

A LifeStar helicopter picked up the driver of the vehicle at the Liberty Memorial Central Middle School landing zone. This person was only described as a 37-year-old male. He was reportedly thrown from the vehicle in the crash and suffered a possible head injury.

The second injured person, said to be a 22-year-old female, was transported by ground after being extricated from the vehicle. Medics reported that she was "extremely combative."

Both injured people were transported to the University of Kansas hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.

Police believe the accident was a "high speed crash." There were no reports of anyone inside the lower level of the building when the crash occurred.

Gary Strong, owner of Strong's Antiques, tells my news partners at the Lawrence Journal-World that the vehicle was traveling north on Massachusetts Street at high speeds when it struck a concrete planter in front of his store.

Strong says the crash damaged his storefront along with glassware and antiques inside. The car's motor flew through the building in the crash and landed on a Steinway piano inside.

The residents of 1025.5 Massachusetts Street reported a smoke odor inside their apartment following the accident. Firefighters responded to that upstairs apartment and were able to determine that there was no fire. The residents were kept out of the building as a precaution, until the structural integrity of the building could be confirmed.

Police report damaged windows and railings at neighboring businesses and significant damage to a concrete planter.

Due to the large response from Lawrence Fire Medical crews, some off-duty personnel were called in to staff reserve units and handle other calls throughout the city. Lawrence Police held over their late swing shift officers to help with the accident and handling other calls for service. Those officers were allowed to go off-duty around 4:30 a.m..

Fully engulfed house fire in rural Douglas County

Operation 100 News report

At 4:06 a.m. Palmyra Township fire was dispatched to respond on house fire at 358 E. 2073 Road. The address is about three miles northeast of Baldwin City.

Initial reports indicate that the resident returned home to find his residence on fire and called 911.

A Kansas Highway Patrol helicopter advised dispatchers that the structure was fully engulfed, just one minute after firefighters were dispatched. The highway patrol's helicopter had been in Johnson County assisting in the search for a man who ran from a stolen vehicle on Interstate 35 near the Gardner-Edgerton area.

The helicopter pilot told dispatchers that his earlier area search was about nine miles to the east and they could see the 'glow' starting around 4 a.m.. When the helicopter was available from their search, they went to investigate the glow and learned that the fire had already been reported to Douglas County authorities.

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.

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.
