Officials flew a woman by air ambulance Friday to Kansas University Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries she received in a three-vehicle accident at 31st Street and Neider Road.

Lawrence police arrived at the scene about 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Sgt. Dave Hubbel said an Acura sport utility vehicle and a red Chevrolet collided near the intersection. He said the red Chevrolet then spun and hit another vehicle. The passenger in the Chevrolet was flown by air ambulance to an area hospital. Hubbel said the hospital was not yet known. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.

A man and woman in the SUV were transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for injuries, Hubbel said.

Additional details are pending.
