The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after five people were injured in a rollover accident Tuesday morning.

The accident occurred in the median of Interstate 435, south of the Renner Road bridge and north of the 79th Street bridge in Shawnee, around 6:15 a.m..

A witness tells Operation 100 News that the vehicle was northbound on Interstate 435 and left the east side of the highway near the 79th Street overpass. The vehicle then crossed the northbound lanes into the median, hit a crossover lane and rolled several times before landing near the southbound lanes.

Troopers have confirmed what a witness told Operation 100 earlier this morning. Troopers say the vehicle was a 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT and was traveling northbound on Interstate 435. As the highway curves to the left, the driver did not turn, causing the vehicle to leave the right side of the highway. The driver swerved back onto the highway and the vehicle began a counter-clockwise spin.

Troopers say the vehicle crossed all of the northbound lanes and entered the grassy median. In the median the vehicle overturned several times and one occupant was ejected. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels, just off of the southbound lanes.

Dispatchers confirm that four adults and an infant were injured in the crash. One adult has life threatening injuries. The infant and three other adults are said to have non life threatening injuries.

Shawnee Firefighters extricated two people from the wreckage. The other vehicle occupants were able to get out of the crashed vehicle on their own.

A total of five Med-Act ambulances were dispatched to the scene. All but one of those ambulances transported injured people from the scene.

Troopers say the driver of the vehicle suffered a medical condition. It is unclear if that medical condition may have contributed to the accident's cause or if the medical issue was after the crash.

The driver has been identified as a, 39-year-old, Lenexa woman. Troopers say she was wearing a seat belt. Passengers in the vehicle are aged 1, 18, 21, and 22.

Other area media reported that four people were ejected in the crash, this is false according to multiple calls to dispatchers and the preliminary accident report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Shawnee Police say the accident is being investigated by the Kansas Highway Patrol. Lenexa Police also assisted on the scene with traffic control.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical crews were on the scene of a hazardous materials investigation in southern Lawrence this morning.

Crews were dispatched to a duplex in the 2500 block of Crestline Court at 1:45 a.m. Tuesday. The incident began after a resident of the Crestline Court address arrived at a gas station near 31st and Iowa streets.



A medic unit was dispatched to the gas station to assess the resident, while other crews were sent to the residence.

A source familiar with the investigation tells Operation 100 News that a 40-year-old man was "exposed to an unknown chemical in his home." The man left his home to find help after he began experiencing symptoms of chemical exposure. His symptoms are said to include red eyes, face and nose.

At 3:20 a.m., the man was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for further treatment. Lawrence Police also requested that the on-call Animal Control Officer be dispatched to the scene to remove at least one dog from the duplex.

At least three fire crews, two medic units, two LDCFM chiefs and Lawrence Police were on the Crestline Court scene. There have been no other injuries reported and no word of any evacuations.

Stabbing suspect charged with attempted murder

Posted: August 26, 2013 - 1:45am
Updated: August 27, 2013 - 4:06pm


Update:


As of Tuesday afternoon, court records show the suspect in Monday morning's stabbing and standoff in Gardner has been charged with attempted second-degree murder. 

Johnson County prosecutors have charged, 35-year-old, David Lee Conner, who is a Gardner resident. Conner is being held at the Johnson County Sheriff's Office Central Booking Center in Olathe on at $75,000 bond

Gardner Police also arrested a 31-year-old female resident of the same address Monday evening. Court records show that she was wanted for failure to appear on a theft charge.



Original Report:


Photo from the Gardner Police Department's Facebook page
Gardner Police and the Johnson County Sheriff's office are engaged in an apparent standoff with a stabbing suspect this morning.

Police were called to a mobile home in the 1000 block of Buffalo Trail around 1 a.m. Monday. The mobile home is part of the Conestoga Estates mobile home park, on east Santa Fe Street in Gardner, just south east of Main Street and Moonlight Road.

The suspect left the scene and was reportedly spotted running inside another mobile home in the same park.

Johnson County Med-Act reported a male with a stab wound to the neck, his injury was not believed to be immediately life threatening. The man was transported to an area hospital for further treatment.

Police quickly moved to the location where the alleged suspect is believed to be hiding out.

Gardner Police are currently confirming very few details surrounding the incident. Officers confirmed that the Johnson County Sheriff's Office's SERT is preparing to respond to the scene. SERT is the Sheriff's Emergency Response Team.

Shortly before 4 a.m., Johnson County's mobile command post arrived near the scene to assist. Reports indicate that at least two neighboring mobile homes have been evacuated as a precaution.

Police confirmed that the incident ended before 7 a.m.. Gardner Police say the Sheriff's Office SERT team was used in the incident but, this was not a standoff. SERT entered the mobile home after obtaining a search warrant. The stabbing suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

Gardner Police say this appears to be a dispute over a woman. An ex-boyfriend or possibly ex-husband stabbed the woman's new boyfriend. Again, the stabbing victim is being treated at an area hospital. He is expected to be released today.

Authorities are investigating after an aircraft reported being hit with a laser light shortly after midnight Wednesday.

Master Police Officer Dan Friesen, of the Lenexa Police Department, tells Operation 100 News that they received a report of the incident from the Kansas City International airport control tower around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.


KCI officials told Lenexa Police that about 20 minutes earlier, an aircraft was shined with a green laser light over their city. Approximate coordinates led officers to the intersection of 79th Street and Quivira Road.

Officer Friesen says, "officers didn't find anything in the area."

Authorities say the laser light was spotted by the pilot of a "small beechcraft aircraft." That aircraft was headed towards the Johnson County Executive Airport, near 151st Street and Pflumm Road in Olathe.

LaserPointerSafety.com says the Federal Aviation Administration has received 2,282 reports of laser/aircraft incidents from January 1, 2013 through August 1, 2013. The August 2013 number of reported incidents is 22% higher than the same time period of 2012 and on pace for there to be 4,254 total laser/aircraft incidents in the 2013 calendar year.

It is a violation of Federal Law to aim laser pointers at aircraft or their flight path. Violators can be fined and face up to five years in prison. Source: 18 USC § 39A - Aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft.
