Eventually one of the teenagers admitted that the goat had been taken from the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead, located at 13800 Switzer Road in Overland Park.

June 17 update:


The accident report regarding this accident was recently updated with new information.

The report states that the dash cam of an officer who was traveling eastbound on Blackfish Parkway captured the events that led up to the westbound truck leaving the road. The truck left the camera's view just before the tree was struck.

A man jogging on the sidewalk, just off the south side of Blackfish Parkway, witnessed the accident in its entirety and was the first to arrive at the crashed truck. That witness told police that the crashed truck's windshield wipers were still on and the truck's engine was still running.

Officers analyzed data retrieved from the truck's computer components and determined that the truck was traveling at 59 miles per hour about two and a half seconds before the crash. The speed at impact with the tree was determined to be closer to 47 miles per hour. The posted speed limit is 35 miles per hour.

The report says that the driver, Colin Michael Pegg, was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the truck.

The investigating officer states that the truck's driver "was traveling too fast for the conditions around the curve on the wet pavement. Toxicology reports are pending and they will determine if drugs or alcohol was also a contributing factor for the crash."

June 14 update:


Operation 100 News has obtained a copy of the accident report for the June 7th accident that killed Colin Michael Pegg, 23, of Lenexa.

The crash narrative states that the truck was westbound on Blackfish Parkway negotiating a curve. The truck spun out on the wet pavement and collided with a curb at a drainage ditch. The truck then left the north side of the roadway where it struck a mailbox and then a tree.

Accident reconstruction illustrations show that the mailbox and the pole it was mounted on were both thrown over 100ft from their original location.

Alcohol is listed in the report as a contributing factor. Final drug and alcohol testing results were still pending when the report was obtained.

Original report and photos:


The Shawnee Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit is investigating after a single vehicle accident killed a Lenexa man this morning.

An officer patrolling the area found the crash scene in the 13600 block of Blackfish Parkway just before 7:15 Saturday morning.

Police at the scene say the 2007 GMC Sierra pickup was found crashed into a tree with the driver dead inside.

The truck left was traveling westbound on Blackfish Parkway when the driver lost control, travelled off the north side of the roadway, smashed through a mailbox and struck a tree.

Saturday afternoon, Major Doug Orbin identified the driver as 23-year-old, Colin Michael Pegg of Lenexa.

A witness to the aftermath of the accident tells Operation 100 News, "it was obvious that he was not going to be revived."
