Injury accidents

  • Police may suspect alcohol contributed to a wreck Thursday that sent a 22-year-old Lawrence man to the hospital.

James A. Springer was driving his 1997 Nissan west on Sixth Street shortly after midnight when he crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a 2005 Pontiac driven by Mike L. Leopold, 51, Cincinnati, Ohio, then hit a concrete guardrail.

Two passengers in Leopold's car suffered minor injuries, according to a report.
