Alcohol suspected in high-speed, rear-end crash in Overland Park

Two people were rushed to the hospital late Monday after the SUV they were in was rear-ended by a suspected drunken driver who was speeding.

Witnesses told police that a blue Honda CR-V was northbound on Metcalf with a man and woman about 10:45 p.m. when a speeding, tan GMC pickup rear-ended it. Both vehicles suffered major damage in the crash.

The two people in the CR-V were taken to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. The pickup driver and his passenger were not injured.

Police suspect that the pickup driver might have been drinking.
