The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after a three vehicle accident left two people injured this morning in Bonner Springs.

Troopers say accident occurred at 2:40 a.m. in the intersection of southbound Kansas Highway 7 and Kansas Avenue, just over half of a mile south of Interstate 70.

Investigators say a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu was southbound on K-7, ran a red light and struck a 1996 Ford Econoline van, that was eastbound on Kansas Avenue, nearly head on.


The force of the collision ejected the driver of the van onto the highway and knocked the van back and into the front bumper of a Bonner Springs Police patrol vehicle, a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, that was traveling behind the van.

Bonner Springs Fire and EMS reported the ejected driver of the van to be in critical condition at the scene and the driver of the car to be seriously injured. The police officer did not report any injuries.

Troopers have identified the driver of the Chevrolet Malibu as, 41-year-old, Erin Jantz of Olathe, Kansas. The driver of the Ford Econoline is, 50-year-old, Monto Cauthron of Kansas City, Kansas. The Bonner Springs Police officer is, 24-year-old, John Marino of Lawrence, Kansas.

The Highway Patrol's accident report says that Mr. Jantz and Officer Marino were both wearing seatbelts when the accident occurred. Mr. Cauthron was not wearing a seatbelt.

Troopers continue to investigate if alcohol may have played a role in the accident's cause.

An additional EMS unit from the Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department assisted on the call and transported one of the injured men.

Updated: June 18, 2013 - 6:02am

Overland Park firefighters were called to respond on a house fire shortly before 2 a.m. Tuesday, in the 8800 block of Westbrooke Drive. The address is near the intersection of 88th Terrace and Farley Street.


Crews arrived to report flames visible from a basement window on the front side of the single story home. As those crews entered the home they found that a resident had been hoarding items inside several rooms.

A fire in the basement was knocked down within about 20 minutes. Crews found that the fire had extended to the first floor. As crews worked to make access to the fire, piles of debris became a problem.

Radio traffic reported three to four foot piles of material in several rooms of the home. The piles made it difficult for crews to check the integrity of the floor and to fully extinguish the fire quickly.

A resident reported a room on the first floor was being used to store some homemade fireworks and ammunition. Firefighters backed out of the house when some of those items began to discharge.

As of this report, crews are more than one hour and 20 minutes into the incident and they remain on the scene. Incident command reported the fire to be under control at 3:17 a.m.. Command reported "fire out" at 3:32 a.m..

A news release from the Overland Park Fire Department says the residents of the home awoke to the smell of smoke. Four residents were able to evacuate safely prior to the arrival of firefighters. One resident was treated for minor burns. The home suffered fire damage to the basement and first floor, with significant smoke damage throughout the house.

Investigators believe that the home did not have any working smoke alarms. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
