Buckeye Road (near Frank Allis Elementary School)

Details

 A concerned citizen called in a reckless driver who sped past Frank Allis Elementary School Wednesday afternoon: His pickup truck swerving in the roadway, crossing the double yellow line, and going into the wrong lanes of traffic. The same truck was called in the day prior, on Tuesday, after it was seen recklessly passing other cars in a school zone on the East Side. Following the second report, a MPD officer located the pickup truck and its driver at Olbrich Park yesterday. The driver, a 50-yar-old man, explained that killers and hit men were following him and that is why he has been driving in an erratic manner. It was determined the man was having mental health issues and he was taken to a hospital
