At 11:31 a.m. on Dec. 10 emergency personnel from McPherson Medical Services, McPherson Fire Department and McPherson Police Department, responded to East Kansas and North Maxwell Street to assist someone who’s leg was stuck in a fence.
“Before Officers arrived, bystanders had already helped the male get unstuck and back in the wheel chair,” McPherson Police Department Administrative Captain/Public Information Officer Mark Brinck said. “The male apparently veered off the sidewalk in the wheel chair and attempted to stop, resulting in his leg getting caught up in a fence. The male was not injured. Thank you to the bystanders who helped out.”
In addition, at 3:15 p.m. emergency personnel from McPherson Medical Services, McPherson Fire Department and McPherson Police Department, responded to the 600 block of South Ash Street for a hit and run traffic collision.

Officers arrested the driver, 41-year-old Shanea M. Yocham, for driving under the influence and cited her for failure to stop at an accident, improper passing, and failure to wear a seatbelt.
