Woman hit by Jeep while working on car

February 25, 2006


A Jeep came around a corner, struck a parked Buick LeSabre and pinned a Eudora woman who was working on the car against it in an east Lawrence mobile-home park.

Sheila Grammer was flown by a LifeStar helicopter to the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., and David Erwin, 21, who also was working on the car, suffered injuries. He was taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Lawrence Police Sgt. Paul Fellers said.

Officers and medical workers were called at 5:41 p.m. to a street inside the Brookwood Mobile Home Community at 1908 E. 19th St., which is just east of the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Police interviewed the Jeep's driver, John Berry, 16, Lawrence, and released him later Friday evening, Fellers said. No one inside the Jeep was injured.

An LMH nursing supervisor said Friday night that Erwin was transferred to a Kansas City area hospital for treatment of trauma but that he was listed in good condition.

A nursing supervisor at the KU hospital said Grammer's condition report was unavailable Friday night.
