Mark Allen Alholm’s injuries were consistent with that of someone committing suicide by being run over by a train, Lawrence Police Sgt. Mike Pattrick said Friday. No foul play was suspected. Alholm was last seen alive about 9 a.m. Thursday and police were called to the tracks to investigate about 12:20 p.m., Pattrick said. The body was about 100 yards east of where the tracks cross Eight Street. __________________________ Highway injury: Traffic accident lands Hawaiian in hospital Ottawa A 26-year-old Hawaii woman was in stable condition at Olathe Medical Center after a vehicle accident Friday morning near Ottawa. About 5:50 a.m. Friday, Elizabeth F. Henderson, Honolulu, was westbound in a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo on Kansas Highway 68. About 2 miles east of Ottawa while attempting to pass a white semi trailer, she swerved to avoid hitting the truck, which also was westbound and was left of the center line. Henderson’s vehicle went off the road and overturned; she was ejected. According to a Highway Patrol report, she was not wearing a seat belt. The semi truck did not stop at the scene. Henderson initially was transported to Ransom Memorial Hospital in Ottawa but later was taken to Olathe Medical Center. __________________________ Preservation: Restored county bridge to be dedicated Monday A bridge built in 1913 is like brand new again. Restoration efforts at Chicken Creek Bridge, located just north of East 850 Road and east of Lone Star Lake, are nearly completed, said Keith Browning, the county’s director of Public Works. About 10:15 a.m. Monday, Douglas County commissioners will attend a dedication ceremony at the bridge A permanent plaque will be on display near the bridge. Before leaving for the dedication ceremony, commissioners will meet at 9 a.m. at the county courthouse, 1100 Mass. __________________________ Baseball bat use alleged in scuffle A 38-year-old Baldwin man was charged Friday with aggravated battery after he allegedly hit another man with a baseball bat Thursday outside a Lawrence convenience store. Carl Butler allegedly hit Charles Cole, 37, Eudora, with the bat about 10 a.m. Thursday during a fight at Kwik Shop, 1714 W. 23rd Street. Police said Cole was working on a car belonging to Butler’s wife, Judy Butler. Butler confronted Cole, saying he didn’t want anyone working on the car. Both received minor injuries during the fight. After hearing police sirens, Butler fled the scene. He was arrested shortly after near 27th and Iowa streets. He also was charged with transporting an open container. Bond was set at $75,000. __________________________ Mass. St. Bridge robbery reported A 28-year-old Lawrence man reported being robbed at gunpoint Wednesday on the Kansas River Bridge. The man said he was stopped on his bicycle between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the east pedestrian walkway, near the south end of the bridge. He said a man wearing a bandanna over his face approached him and put a handgun to his back. He gave the man the wallet, which contained $15. The suspect then escaped down the stairway.
