Driver in critical condition after three-vehicle accident A woman who was pinned in her car for more than 20 minutes Friday afternoon was listed in critical condition Friday at a Kansas City hospital. Emergency personnel had to cut away the roof of Jodie Hurt’s 1998 Honda Civic to get her out after a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck was struck by a third vehicle and spun around and landed on Hurt’s hood. Hurt, 30, Lawrence, was conscious and talking when medics loaded her into a Lifestar helicopter en route to Kansas University Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan. A 2001 Dodge Intrepid driven by 21-year-old Megan Thompson of Baldwin was eastbound on Sixth Street when it collided with the pickup, which was southbound on Rockledge Road, Lawrence Police Sgt. Paul Fellers said. Hurt had been traveling north on Rockledge, but had stopped at the intersection to turn left. Thompson was cited for inattentive driving and no proof of insurance, Fellers said. A passenger in the pickup, Jason Alldrege, 19, Lawrence, was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. He was listed in good condition Friday night. __________________________ America responds: Nuclear waste shipment postponed indefinitely A train that was supposed to carry a shipment of high-level atomic waste through Lawrence on its way to Idaho has been postponed until at least April 2002. The shipment would have included 125 highly radioactive nuclear fuel assemblies the largest single shipment of commercial irradiated nuclear fuel in U.S. history, a Department of Energy spokesman said. The department suspended the shipment after receiving objections from environmental and public interest groups. A representative of Nuclear Information and Resource Service said that although the Department of Energy wouldn’t admit it publicly, the shipment was suspended due to terrorism and security concerns. __________________________ Kansas University: Fire forces evacuation of private residence hall Naismith Hall residents were awakened and forced to leave their rooms early Friday morning when trash caught on fire in a fifth-floor stairwell, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical said. Kansas University students living at the private residence hall at 1800 Naismith Drive were evacuated about 4 a.m. and sent to Oliver Residence Hall across the street, Fire & Medical said. Fire crews extinguished the fire, searched the building and then cleared smoke from the upper floors. Naismith residents were allowed to return to their rooms about 5 a.m. There was no word on what caused the fire. __________________________ Events: Director helps celebrate KU studios’ anniversary Television director Mike Robe spoke at ceremonies Friday evening to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Kansas University’s Oldfather Studios, home to the university’s film studies program. Robe, a Los Angeles documentary director and television writer/director, spoke and reminisced about what a difference the studio has made for students. He is a founding member of the Professional Advisory Board of KU’s department of theater and film and has served as its chairman. Robe, a KU alumnus, directed more than 30 documentaries for the British Broadcasting Corp. and the Australian Broadcasting Commission before he began his television writing career in 1979. __________________________ Gasoline: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.079 per gallon at several locations throughout Lawrence and the surrounding area.
