Two people were injured when two vehicles crashed head-on in Shawnee late Monday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the westbound Shawnee Mission Parkway ramp to Maurer Road around 11:40 a.m..

Firefighters arrived to report two vehicles with heavy damage.

Johnson County Med-Act transported two people from the scene. One with serious injuries, the other with minor injuries.

Police say the Honda Accord was traveling the wrong way on the exit ramp and struck the Chevrolet Silverado head-on.

Major Bill Hisle says, "Luckily they were on the ramp so they were not at highway speeds."

Olathe firefighters have rescued a woman from inside her burning home.

Firefighters were called to the address in the 2000 block of E. Mohawk Drive shortly before 7 a.m..

Initial reports indicated that two people were trapped inside.

Olathe Fire Department Captain Mike Hall says one woman was rescued from the home by firefighters. A man and the family dog were both able to get out on their own.

Both residents are said to have very minor injuries.

Crews battled heavy fire and requested a second alarm response, as the fire spread into the attic of the two story home. A Battalion Chief at the scene reports that ammunition stored inside the home was firing off due to the heat of the fire.

A total of three Johnson County Med-Act ambulances were called to the scene.

Firefighters from the Overland Park fire department are also on the scene assisting.

A neighbor tells Operation 100 News that Johnson County Med-Act is at the home frequently for various different reasons.

The Red Cross has been called to assist the three adults who were displaced by the fire.

Firefighters from three area departments worked to extinguish a house fire early Saturday.

Emergency crews were called to the home in the 5500 block of Roundtree Street around 12:50 a.m.

Police were first on the scene and reported heavy fire from the garage of the home.

The residents of the home, two adults and a child, were able to escape the burning home uninjured.

Fire crews knocked down most of the fire from the outside, before making their way inside to check for and extinguish additional fire.

The fire was reported under control around 1:10 a.m. and out at 1:40 a.m..

Shawnee fire marshal Corey Sands says the resident had recently stained the home's deck and placed the oil soaked rags in the trash can in the garage. The fire was caused by spontaneous combustion of those oily rags.

Firefighters from the Lenexa Fire Department and Olathe Fire Department assisted on the initial call.

Firefighters returned to extinguish hot spots around 9 a.m..

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a man who stopped to help a stalled motorist, is now in critical condition after being struck on Kansas Highway 10.

The accident occurred in the westbound lanes of K-10 just west of K-7 in Olathe around 8:30 p.m..

Johnson County Med-Act transported the man to an area hospital with critical injuries.

Troopers say the injured man was driving westbound on the highway when he found a car stalled in the right lane of the highway. The man decided to help and parked his car on the right shoulder.

As the man was trying to assist the stalled driver, a third vehicle struck the man and the stalled vehicle.

The westbound lanes remained closed until around 12:30 a.m. Saturday as the Kansas Highway Patrol's Critical Highway Accident Response Team worked to map the incident scene.
