Law enforcement report
A McLouth woman was critically injured in a car accident Saturday on Kansas Highway 10 just east of Lawrence. About 6 p.m., the 43-year-old woman turned from O'Connell Road into the eastbound lane of K-10, Lawrence Police Sgt. Paul Fellers said. Witnesses saw the woman's four-door Mercury Tracer drive into a median, then strike a westbound Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Jarred Born of Eudora. The 21-year-old man was not injured, but the McLouth woman was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and later the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., where she was listed in critical condition. Police are withholding her name pending notification of family, Fellers said.
