These accident reports were released this past week by law enforcement agencies:

A kayak lying in the roadway after it fell, unnoticed, from a vehicle that had been carrying it was hit at 11:25 p.m. May 29 by a 2008 Toyota Sienna owned and driven by David A. Spencer, 65, of Lincoln, Nebraska.

In his report, deputy Kaylan Miles does not identify the kayak owner other than to say the kayak was not missed until after the owner returned home to Hillsboro.
