Two people suffered injuries in a one-vehicle accident early Monday morning on U.S. Highway 40 just west of Lawrence.

One person was taken by helicopter to the Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. A second person was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

The Douglas County Sheriff's office, which was still investigating the accident this morning, has not yet released the names of the victims.

The accident was reported about 1:02 a.m. Monday on U.S. 40, about a half mile east of E600 Road.
