A 21-year-old man was flown to an area hospital after being struck by a car early Sunday morning but the injuries he suffered were not life-threatening, according to Sgt. David Hubbel of the Lawrence Police Department.
Kyle Kuestersteffen was hit about 1:30 a.m. in the middle of the 1000 block of Tennessee Street.
A Kansas University senior who lived near the scene, Jon Silverberg, said several police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance responded to the accident. They remained on the scene until about 3 a.m. or later, he said.
Kuestersteffen was taken by helicopter to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. A nursing supervisor said that as of Sunday night, he was no longer at the hospital.
Police did not release any information Sunday about the vehicle or driver involved in the accident.
