October 10, 2009


Two KU students were transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries early Saturday morning after a two-vehicle accident on Massachusetts Street.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl said officers came across the scene of the accident about the same time the call was made to Douglas County dispatchers regarding the incident. Hadl said at about 2:09 a.m. Saturday, seven KU students were involved in a motor vehicle accident in the 1800 block of Massachusetts Street.

One vehicle, a red Pontiac, was described heading southbound on Massachusetts Street. The vehicle was occupied by three men, all KU students in their early 20s. The driver of the Pontiac was attempting to turn into the Kwik Shop, 1846 Mass., when the vehicle hit a car heading northbound on the same street.

Hadl said the second vehicle was a Volkswagen Beetle occupied by four KU students, two men and two women.

The driver of the Volkswagen and one of her passengers, both 19 years old, were injured in the accident. Both were transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after receiving treatment at the scene.

Hadl said alcohol was not a contributing factor in the accident. It was determined the driver of the Pontiac was at fault, failing to yield the right-of-way. He received a citation in relation to the incident.

thebcman- That only took 29 minutes. You also forgot all the "Must've been a drunk Topkean thug" even though it says alcohol was not a factor.

It's easy to obsess when your IQ only allows one thought on any given story...

228 is actually the highest IQ ever recorded. Marilyn vos Savant is in the Guinness Book of World records for having that exact score.

I guess what I'm saying is, Roger, I don't believe you.

On the contrary, it makes you a memeber of the ID-10-t organization. How can you know the measure of something unmeasureable?

Weird, I didnt know that the President's IQ was 155-164. I would have pegged him much lower than that.
