Before you head out the door, we like to catch you up with what happened while you were sleeping.

Three people were hurt when a car left a northeast Wichita street and ended up in a small lake.

Emergency crews were called to 29th Street North and Governeour -- about midway between Woodlawn and Rock Road -- just after 1 a.m. The car became at least partially submerged in the lake.

One person was taken to Wesley Medical Center with potentially serious injuries. Two people were taken to Via Christi-St. Francis Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. One other person declined any kind of treatment.

A short time later, police in southeast Wichita were sent to check out a report of shots fired near Pawnee and Hillside. That turned out to be a power transformer blowing up.

If you notice emergency traffic in your neighborhood while you're trying to sleep, you can ask us about it on our Good Morning Kansas Facebook page and we'll look for an answer.
