The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating a two car crash that ended with a guard rail piercing through one car.

Shawnee Police dispatched officers to the area of Interstate 435 and Midland just before 7:30 Tuesday morning, after dispatchers received multiple 911 calls reporting an accident. At least one of the callers reported that a vehicle had crossed through the median and struck a guard rail.

Officers located the crash on Interstate 435 between Shawnee Mission Parkway and Midland Drive.

At the scene, one car came to rest on the inside shoulder of northbound I-435 with a guard rail entering the passenger compartment through the engine bay. The end of the guard rail could be seen sticking out of the rear windshield of the car. The second vehicle came to rest in the southbound lanes on I-435.

Johnson County Med-Act reported three minor injuries at the scene. Only one of those injured people was transported by Med-Act to an area hospital.

Troopers say a 2007 Toyota Corolla was southbound in the outside lane, trying to make a lane change, when it was cutoff by an unknown vehicle. The driver of the Toyota swerved to avoid a collision, lost control, and struck a 2007 Cadillac STS, which was also southbound.

The collision forced the Cadillac into the median and the guard rail on the northbound side of the Interstate.

Troopers have identified the driver of the Toyota as a 30-year-old Lenexa woman. There was also a 7-year-old in the Toyota. Both sustained minor injuries, but were not transported by ambulance.

The driver of the Cadillac has been identified as a 64-year-old Topeka man. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his minor injuries.

Gardner Police and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office are investigating after a police pursuit ended in a fatal accident Wednesday morning.

Gardner Police were called to a gas station near 188th and Gardner Road just after midnight on reports of an intoxicated person driving an SUV. There was a second report of a possibly intoxicated driver in a dark-colored SUV that was traveling southbound on Gardner Road.

Officers spotted a dark-colored SUV getting on northbound Interstate 35 from Gardner Road. The driver did not stop when officers attempted a traffic stop. Gardner officers began to pursue the vehicle.

The driver turned around near 175th Street and sped off southbound on Interstate 35 around 12:10 Wednesday morning. Officers reported the SUV was driving erratically with speeds between 60 and 70 miles-per-hour as they continued in pursuit.

Master Deputy Jill Koch of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office says, "Gardner officers observed continuous erratic behavior that posed a great risk to public safety. Repeated attempts to stop the vehicle were unsuccessful."

The driver of the 1996 Toyota 4Runner then exited at Homestead Lane and continued northbound onto the property of BNSF Railway's Logistics Park Kansas City Intermodal Facility at 32880 West 191st Street.

The pursuit then left the Intermodal Facility, returned southbound on Homestead Lane and then westbound on 199th Street.

Gardner Police continued in pursuit as Sheriff's Deputies tried to get in front of the pursuit from the west side of Edgerton. Deputies were trying to get into position to use spike strips on the suspect vehicle's tires.

The suspect vehicle crashed near Mildale Farms at 35250 West 199th Street just after 12:15 a.m.. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Gardner officers reported the driver had been ejected from the vehicle and immediately requested Med-Act to respond.

Johnson County Fire District No. 1 and Johnson County Med-Act were dispatched and arrived in less than five minutes. The first fire unit to arrive at the crash scene reported the car was off of the road and on its side.

Master Deputy Koch confirmed in a news release on Wednesday, that the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

A news release on Friday identified the driver as Arthur Lee Wright, 65, of Kansas City, Kansas.

The pursuit covered about 10 miles in just under 10 minutes.
