Intoxicated Man Slams Car Into An Overland Park Residence

This call came into Overland Park police around 4:06 a.m.: a reported male driver of a car had crashed into a residence in the 9400 block of West 123rd Street- 123rd and Grant.


The caller to police reported the male exited the car after the crash- wandered around the scene a bit- then fell to the ground bemoaning his situation.

The crash also severed a gas line at the house- and the family inside who was uninjured were forced to evacuate the structure for about an hour until the gas was shut off by a utility crew.

The male driver of the car wasn't injured in the crash- but was arrested by the OPPD for driving under the influence.


This was one of several overnight crashes that involved reportedly intoxicated persons but fortunately no critical injuries or fatalities.
