24-Year-Old Olathe Man Charged After Crash That Killed Part-Time Police Officer In Overland Park
24-year-old Dana Patton of Olathe has been charged in the killing of a part-time Louisburg, Kan., police officer.
The traffic crash took place on 16 October, 2015, at 123rd Street and Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park when the Olathe man was involved in a crash that resulted in the death of 58-year-old David M. Stubbs.
Patton was charged in Johnson County District Court on multiple charges including alternative counts of reckless second-degree murder or involuntary manslaughter.
Details of the incident were provided by Overland Park police, stating that Stubbs was killed when the driver of a stolen car ran a red light and collided with his vehicle. The driver of the stolen vehicle ran from the scene of the accident but was arrested shortly after.
According to Johnson County court records, Patton was already wanted on two warrants at the time of the wreck which charged him with violations of his bond conditions in two auto theft cases.
As a result of the new case, he is charged with aggravated battery, failure to stop at a traffic crash, and obstruction of legal process.
His bond is set at $1 million. His court appearance was scheduled for Thursday.
