A white Toyota SUV crashed at the intersection of Tuttle Creek Boulevard & Leavenworth Street shortly before 7:00pm on Monday.
The Riley County Police Department said that the driver of the white Toyota SUV was behind a vehicle that had slowed down for the yellow light, driving southbound on Tuttle Creek Boulevard. The driver of the Toyota attempted to slow down, but told RCPD that his brakes didn't work, and the driver was trying to avoid crashing into the vehicle that was slowing in front of him.
Instead of crashing into the car that was slowing, the driver of the Toyota decided to swerve and attempt to jump the curb but the car hit the curb, which caused the Toyota to flip over onto the drivers side and come to a rest on the curb. The Toyota SUV had to be removed from the scene by a tow truck and the driver did not have any injuries from the accident.

The church that embraces diversity and has congregates voting NO on the anti-abortion amendment
Kansans hit the polls yesterday, holding the nations first test of voters feelings about the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Along with voting for candidates in the primary. The referendum on the proposed anti-abortion amendment to the Kansas constitution was being closely watched as a barometer of liberal and moderate voters. One voter who spoke with Wildcat 91.9 is the leader of the Mission Board at the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Jean Steiner the mission board leader said she's voting to preserve the right to privacy.
"I believe that this constitutional amendment would violate that privacy. I believe that the court finding a few years back that this legislature could not pass laws that would abolish abortion is based on that right to privacy. And to me, that's a very deep belief that I think is extremely important and I think that our denomination also holds that belief of that right to privacy and relationship with God, that should not be subject to the whims of a state legislature."
With some Kansans being confused about the verbiage of the amendment. It does not help at some are receiving text messages containing misleading information. The following quote is text message that people received on August 1st saying. "Women in Kansas are losing their choice on reproductive rights. Vote yes on the amendment that will give women a choice."
The text messages that Kansans have been receiving have prompted the Kansas governmental Ethics Commission to issue a response and at this time, the reporting the identity of the organization responsible for sending the text message out is still unknown. Jeanne Steiner still says she's voting no.
"I personally believe about no is voting to protect the right to privacy, which would include the freedom of religion and separation of religion and state, though it's being framed as an abortion question only whichever beliefs people have, I hope they vote this is an extremely important for the state of Kansas and basically for, for people everywhere."
