An 84-year-old Lawrence man remains hospitalized at Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., after he was struck crossing Sixth Street last week.
According to a Lawrence police accident report, Wesley H. Layton suffered a small laceration on the back of his head and a broken left leg. He was transferred to KU Hospital from Lawrence Memorial Hospital after the accident at noon last Thursday.
Police said Layton was ticketed for crossing Sixth Street near Colorado Street, where there is no crosswalk. He was struck by an eastbound car, and witnesses said the driver of the car, 82-year-old Ulis D. Sanders of Lawrence, tried to stop. It was also raining during the accident.
