Driver flips pickup, hurts elbow

Kcpd_patch_13I rode with Kansas City police officer Ben Dougherty Saturday night in the North Patrol Division. It was a slow shift, but I'll report what happened in several posts today.

4:50 p.m. - Injury accident call. Driver has flipped his Ford Ranger FX4 pickup on a 169 entrance ramp. We run code, but before we get there we hear, "This is going to be a minor elbow injury." Bless seatbelts and airbags. Officer Dougherty blocks the ramp with his car while I hoof it under the overpass to gawk.

5:01 p.m. - Drivers pull up and ask Officer Dougherty how to get on southbound 169. He tells them to go to the next light, turn left and do a U-turn. No one does. Some turn right. "I guess I have to work on my communication," he says.
