Law enforcement report


  • A Lawrence woman was treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital Friday afternoon after a two-vehicle accident on Kansas Highway 10, just west of the Johnson-Douglas County line. Christina Garcia, 42, was driving west in a 2001 Ford car when it was struck by a westbound 1993 Dodge car driven by Patricia Smith, 67, Eudora, the Kansas Highway Patrol said. Garcia's car spun into the ditch, overturned and landed upright, the Highway Patrol said. Smith's Dodge crossed the median into the eastbound lanes and then into the ditch where it stopped. Smith and a passenger were not hurt.
  • During the Kansas University football game Saturday, a person became overexcited and possibly had a heart attack, KU Public Safety officials said.
