Condition update

A pedestrian who was hit by a car Friday morning was drunk, a Lawrence police spokeswoman said Monday.

David Kalb, 45, Lawrence, was flown by air ambulance to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., after the accident, which occurred shortly before 7 a.m. on 11th Street between Kentucky and Vermont streets.

“The investigation determined that he was intoxicated in the roadway,” said Kim Murphree, police spokeswoman.

Police on Monday identified the driver who hit Kalb as William Woods, 42, Lawrence. The car was westbound in the 200 block of West 11th Street, police said.

Kalb’s condition was not made available by a hospital spokesman on Monday. Police said he was alert and conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

Kalb will be cited for being drunk in the street; for crossing the street at a spot other than at a marked crosswalk; and for failing to yield to all vehicles in the road, Murphree said.
