On Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at approximately 12:47 p.m., emergency responders were dispatched to Kansas Avenue and Parkway Boulevard for a report of an injury accident. Witnesses reported a car crossed the median on Kansas Avenue and struck a parked car at 7 W. Parkway, the USD480 office. Responding officers found that a 1992 Acura had collided with a 2015 Dodge Journey and a 2010 Chrysler. Both of the parked vehicles were unoccupied.

Investigating officers found that a 31 year old female was driving the Acura north on Kansas Avenue with a 4 year old female passenger. The Acura left the roadway and drove through the median, crossing the opposing lanes of traffic and through the opposite ditch. The Acura struck a gas vent pipe and stop sign before colliding with the parked vehicles. The occupants of the Acura were not injured. No other injuries were reported.
