>>> Two people were in a car that crashed around 2:20 am Sunday morning on northbound I-35 at Lamar.
It took until 2:46 am to extricate the driver and 2:49 am the passenger from the heavily damaged car that rolled over more than once and landed off the roadway.
The driver is said to be an approximately 21-year-old male- who suffered head- limb and other injuries and was in critical condition. There was also the odor of alcohol on the man.
The passenger had leg and other injuries but their condition appeared to be less-serious. Both were taken to the same Metro trauma center.
... At 3:20 am- a woman in her 20's was thrown from her motor scooter after it was intentionally struck from behind by another vehicle.
She was taken from the 63rd Street and Brookside Boulevard crime scene with serious injuries to a city trauma center.
Police give witness accounts that the woman was on her orange and white scooter when it was struck from behind by a large- blue-colored car- possibly a Chevy Caprice.
The woman was thrown from the scooter- then a passenger in the blue car- a black male- got out- picked up the fallen scooter and rode off on it- eastbound on 63rd Street. The driver in the blue car- also a black male- then drove south on Brookside. It wasn't known if there were others in the blue car.
Police are not the only people who want these two suspects of vehicular assault- theft and leaving the scene of an accident among other pending charges.

Another summerlike Fathers Day with temperatures around 90 with humidity getting into the uncomforatble range.
