A non-injury crash was reported at Washington Ave. and NE 30 road. This intersection has seen several other injury crashes along with one fatal crash that happen in the Spring.
A study was done several years ago showing that the intersection does not meet requirements to make it a for-way-stop. Recently the County Engineer Barry McManaman has looked it to the intersection and it still does not meet the requirements to make it a for-way-stop even with recent crashes.
A non-injury crash was reported at NE U.S. 156 and K-4.
A non-injury crash was reported at NE 40 Ave. and East K-4.
Theft was reported at 1155 NW 20 Road.
