BOULDER, Colo. - A Tennessee truck driver accused of plowing through an upscale neighborhood in Longmont, damaging 17 parked cars, and knocking down trees, a lamppost, street sign and fence has pleaded guilty to 37 charges, including driving under the influence.

David Kent, 39, of Lebanon, Tenn., also pleaded guilty Friday in Colorado to careless driving, 17 counts of striking an unattended vehicle, and 18 counts of failing to report an accident or return to the scene of an accident.

Police believe Kent had been drinking and got lost in the narrow streets of the Prospect development, which is known for its upscale homes and unusual architecture. He drove his rig and trailer through alleys, crashing into property, fences, vehicles and landscaping along the way.

No one was injured.

Kent was sentenced to 48 hours of community service, which must be completed before his Sept. 1 deployment to Afghanistan with the Tennessee Army National Guard. He was fined $1,500 for the DUI.

TOPEKA — At least three people — and possibly four — were injured Monday morning in a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 70 east of Topeka.

Four cars and a semi-truck collided about 10 a.m. at milepost 188, near the Topeka service area on the Kansas Turnpike. The service area is just across the Shawnee-Douglas County line.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority gave this account:

  • A 2001 Pontiac sedan driven by Juan Cardenas, 37, of Kansas City, Kan., was parked on the side of the road while Cardenas worked to replace his flat tire.
  • Alejandro Casas, 30, of Lenexa, parked his Ford F-150 on the side of the road, behind the Pontiac, to help Cardenas replace the flat.
  • Michelle Jones, 38, of Gardner, was driving her Chevrolet pickup truck west when she fell asleep and hit the rear of Casas’ truck, which then hit the Pontiac sedan parked in front of it.
  • The Pontiac then was pushed into traffic, where it was struck by Claire Luyckx’s 2006 Buick. Luyckx, 76, is from Ridgway, Colo. The Pontiac was then struck again — this time by a semi-truck driven by 37-year-old Jason Crow, of Liberty, Mo.

Jones, Casas and Cardenas were all listed as injured and were taken to area hospitals. Luyckx was listed as “possibly” injured and was also taken to the hospital for evaluation.

A helicopter ambulance was used to transport one of the patients. A hospital representative at Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center in Topeka said Monday night that Alejandro Casas had been treated and released.

Condition information for the other patients was not available Monday evening.
