An 86-year-old man was taken by air ambulance to a Kansas City, Kan., hospital after a one-vehicle accident Thursday afternoon south of Lawrence.
The accident was reported about 3:30 p.m. Thursday on County Road 1055 near North 1250 Road, which is about a half-mile south of 31st Street and Haskell Avenue.
Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Steve Lewis said 86 year-old Karl Hauser was heading south on County Road 1055 when he lost control of his pickup, which went into the ditch on the east side of the road.
He was flown by emergency helicopter to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.
The hospital did not release information on Hauser’s condition late Thursday night.
