A two car accident at Douglas County Road 9 and U.S. Highway 24/40 sent both drivers to the hospital Tuesday morning. Teagan Roberts, 3, is held by her father Conrad Roberts (far right) as emergency crews work to get her mother, Bethany Roberts, onto a stretcher. Teagan was in the back seat when it was hit by another car.
Two Lawrence drivers were injured in a collision just west of Lawrence Municipal Airport, the Kansas Highway Patrol said. The accident occurred around 9:40 a.m. Tuesday.
A highway patrol report said Lawrence Pringle, 71, was trying to pass a vehicle on the right when he hit a car driven by Bethany Roberts, 32, who was trying to cross U.S. Highway 24-40 on East 1500 Road.
Roberts was treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Pringle was transported to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.
