Two crashes occurred within an hour of each other on Tuesday near Shawnee Mission Parkway and Pflumm Road.

At 11:24 a.m. officers were dispatched to the intersection of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Pflumm Road for a two vehicle crash.

Major Dan Tennis of the Shawnee Police Department said a white 1978 Chevy C-20 work truck ran the light going westbound on Shawnee Mission Parkway and took the front bumper off a 2012 Nissan Altima that had just started to turn left onto eastbound Shawnee Mission Parkway from southbound Pflumm.

Tennis said one driver received a citation for disobeying a traffic light. No injuries were reported.

Less than an hour later at 12:14 p.m., officers were called to the Sonic Drive-In at 13601 W. 63rd Street for an accident involving a pedestrian in the parking lot.

"A driver was backing out of the parking stall of Sonic and collided with a pedestrian walking across the lot," Tennis said.

The pedestrian was able to walk away from the accident, Tennis said, but was ultimately transported to the hospital for treatment.
