Have You Seen Them?
For the majority of their lives cicadas reside underground, sustaining themselves on tree roots. However every 13 to 17 years, distinct broods of cicadas emerge from their subterranean dwellings to find companionship and start a family. Experts say Robertson County is in the party zone. Have you noticed an uptick in cicadas in your neighborhood? Email your photos with your general location to [email protected]. PHOTO: RIDGETOP Cheryl Ann White

An Ambulance & a Pickup Collide

A Logan County Ambulance and a pickup collided at Memorial Blvd and Blackwood Dr in Springfield on Sunday. The crash occurred around 7 pm. Jennifer Davis captured these photos. According to Robertson County EMS, Logan County medics were not injured. Two people from the pickup were transported with minor injuries to TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield. Blackwood Drive was blocked for about 20 minutes. 

Crash In Springfield May Affect Utility Service Near Central & Main.

A driver in Springfield managed to connect with a utility pole, severing it in two. The crash occurred on Main St near Central Ave around 3 AM. We do not believe the driver sustained serious injuries but Springfield Police did take them into custody, we do not know why. The utility lines appeared to be intact but if you have utility service interruptions near the crash this may be the cause. 

We have 2 simultaneous crashes on both sides of I-24. ONE at MM 27 on I-24 EAST called in at 2:06 AM and a second crash at MM 17 on I-24 WEST called in at 1:53 AM. Crashes are not believed to be related. The crash at the 17 is an injury crash requiring extrication. Reportedly one of the drivers fled on foot and may still be on the interstate.. The second crash at the 27 was reported as a non-injury crash. Payne Chevrolet
