November 29, 2000

Leavenworth County Sheriff

A vehicle driven by Aaron Guarino, 17, Tonganoxie, was traveling west on Kansas Highway 16 about 7:10 p.m. Nov. 21 when it struck and killed a deer. The vehicle had under $500 damage.

A vehicle driven by Marshal Goodnight, 32, Tonganoxie, was traveling west on U.S. Highway 24-40, about four miles east of Tonganoxie, when it hit a deer. The vehicle was disabled and had more than $500 damage.

A 1995 Dodge Caravan was reported stolen from a residence in the 2700 block of Tonganoxie Road between 1 a.m. and noon Thursday. There are no suspects and the vehicle, valued on a sheriff's report at $4,600, has not been recovered.

A vehicle driven by Nancy Reed, 62, Easton, was traveling north on Lecompton Road, near Kansas Highway 92, about 6 p.m. Friday when she was distracted by the sight of a deer. Reed failed to stop at a stop sign while crossing K-92 and ran into a ditch on the north side of the highway. Reed complained of minor pain to her face but refused treatment. The vehicle had about $2,000 damage.

An anhydrous ammonia tank being pulled on a trailer by a pickup truck went into a farm field about 1:50 p.m. Friday along Dempsey Road near 195th Street. The tank did not break or leak, but it damaged fencing owned by O.W. Lowe. Officials said Jim Forge, 32830 167th St., had just picked up the full tank from McGraw Fertilizer Service and he was unsure exactly how the accident occurred. An official with McGraw brought an empty tank to the scene, and transferred the ammonia from Forge's tank into the empty tank. Firefighters with Stranger Township Fire Department and Leavenworth County sheriff's deputies stood by during the process, which concluded about 4:15 p.m.

A vehicle driven by Frank Haynes, 31, Leavenworth, was traveling east on County Road 28, 7/10 of a mile west of 207th Street, about 9 a.m. last Wednesday when his vehicle was involved in an accident. Part of the gravel road had been graded, leaving about a foot of piled gravel and frozen dirt in the middle of the road. Haynes' vehicle hit a large chunk of frozen dirt and lost control of his vehicle. It went into the south ditch and overturned. Haynes was taken to St. John Hospital where he was treated and released. The vehicle had more than $500 in damages, reports said.

A vehicle driven by Rose Nemchick, 45, Basehor, was traveling north on County Road 2 when it struck a deer near Cantrell Road. The vehicle received about $1,500 in damages, reports said.
