Spike on Inhalant Abuse DUIs in Kansas

A string of DUI cases have caused a stir amongst the police force in Wichita.

This summer there have been at least 4 cases of young drivers causing accidents due to being under the influence of inhalants.

Police report that aerosol cans are being found in vehicles after collisions.

In fact, in July a 17-year-old female critically injured her passenger in a crash caused by huffing and driving.

In a survey taken this year by Kansas Communities that Care it was found that 15 percent of eigth graders in Sedgwick County have abused inhalants at least once. The percent is slightly higher than the state average of all eigth graders.
