Shawnee Police say a driver not paying attention to the road caused a minor injury crash late Wednesday morning.

Police were called to Johnson Drive and Pflumm Road on a reported crash at 11:08 a.m.

Arriving officers found two vehicles were involved and one came to rest on a sidewalk, near of Haskins Street.

Major Dan Tennis of the Shawnee Police Department says the driver of a Ford Excursion was eastbound on Johnson Drive and sideswiped a westbound Pontiac passenger car.

A passenger in the car complained of neck and back pain following the crash and was transported to an area hospital by Johnson County Med-Act with non-life threatening injuries.

"One citation was given for: driving left of the center line," Tennis said.
