Law enforcement report
A 42-year-old Iola man reported two men took his wallet about 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Greyhound-Trailways Lines bus station, 1401 W. Sixth. The man provided little description of the suspects, but said they may have been driving a maroon-colored car. Lawrence police checked the area and found three cards with the man's name on them just south of the bus station. No further details were available.
Gwendolyn Kennedy, 49, 3409 W. 25th Ter., was in serious condition this morning in the intensive care unit of Topeka's Stormont-Vail Regional Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said. Witnesses told Lawrence police that Kennedy was driving north on McDonald Drive, near Second Street, about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when another vehicle passed Kennedy's car and cut back into her lane too quickly, forcing Kennedy off the road. The car Kennedy was driving struck a utility pole. The other car left the area. Both Kennedy and a passenger, Natasha Kennedy, 9, were taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Natasha Kennedy was released from the hospital Wednesday. About 9:45 p.m., Gwendolyn Kennedy was taken by helicopter to the Stormont-Vail.
