Merriam Police, Fire and Johnson County Med-Act were called to the Wendy's at 10006 W. 75th Street around 2 a.m. Friday after a male told employees that he had been stabbed. Police say the victim and his attacker know each other and the incident likely occurred a short distance away.

Police confirmed a "small puncture wound" to the man's lower left abdomen and after confirming that the suspect had fled the scene, requested that Med-Act respond. Johnson County Med-Act reported that the man's injury was not suspected to be immediately life threatening. The victim was transported to an area hospital for further treatment.

Police conducted an extensive search of a nearby wooded area, which has previously been the location of a homeless camp. Officers from Shawnee and a K-9 unit from Lenexa assisted in the search, which wrapped up around 3:30 a.m.. Police know the suspect's name and continue to be on the lookout for him this morning.

Officers say they believe the two men had an argument at which point the victim was stabbed near the stomach. After being stabbed the victim fled on foot to the Wendy's where he alerted employees to call for Police.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 40's with a beard. He was last seen wearing all black clothing and a black stocking cap. Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts or about the incident itself is asked to call Merriam Police.

Fatal accident involving a car lodged in a tree

Posted: June 7, 2012 - 3:30am
Updated: June 7, 2012 - 4:53pm

Authorities have identified the victim as 23-year-old, Adam P. Baker.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal accident in Aubry Township this morning. The call was dispatched around 3:15 a.m. Thursday and initial reports indicated a car had struck a tree. As Overland Park Fire units arrived on scene they reported that the vehicle was actually off of the ground, in a tree, southeast of the intersection of 167th Street and Metcalf Avenue.

Due to the location of the vehicle, rescue crews were unable to immediately make contact with the reportedly injured person. The Overland Park Fire Department's Rescue apparatus along with an Engine company and an Engine company from Johnson County Fire District No. 2 were all called to the scene and requested to bring their hydraulic rescue equipment and ladders. An Overland Park Fire Battalion Chief reported the vehicle to be "lodged up into trees" and that the "vehicle is unstable."

After about 15 minutes at the scene, crews confirmed that one person is deceased following the accident.

A spokesperson says the victim is believed to be a male. That male was pronounced deceased as soon as crews made access to him. An extensive extrication was required to remove the man from the vehicle. The vehicle is approximately nearly 100 feet off of the roadway. Authorities say it is believed that speed played a role in this accident.

Traffic on 167th Street was closed east of Metcalf for several hours.
