Drunken driver crashes on Mission Road, felling streetlight

Prairie Village police report that a drunken driver crashed into a streetlight on Mission Road between 71st Street and Tomahawk Road last night, causing the lamp just north of Colonial Christian Church to fall. The driver was arrested for driving under the influence.

Public works director Bruce McNabb said the city would be in touch with KCP&L, which manages most of the city’s streetlights, to have it replaced.
