Baldwin man injured in rural one-vehicle accident

October 28, 2005


The Douglas County Sheriff's office is today investigating an overnight accident where a Baldwin man was injured in a one-vehicle wreck near Vinland.

Michael Bridges, 22, was driving about 3:42 a.m. east on North 700 Road near East 1650 Road when his Jeep Wrangler left the road, hit a culvert and came to rest on the passenger side, said Lt. Kari Wempe, a Douglas County Sheriff's spokeswoman.

Bridges was flown to University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., but a condition report wasn't available this morning. Deputies are investigating whether alcohol was a factor.
