One person was taken by air ambulance to an area hospital Tuesday morning after the person's car struck a tree Tuesday morning.

Emergency crews responded to the scene, just south of K-10 in Eudora, about 6:18 a.m. A white SUV struck a tree head-on near the Eudora Township Fire Department on E. 20th Street, south of the city of Eudora.

Douglas County emergency dispatchers said the patient was in critical condition.

blackfox believes, "Most drivers drive what the road will allow."

Um.... or what they THINK the road will allow, until they lose control and hit something hard enough to send them to the hospital with critical injuries.

Keep driving at whatever speed you think the road will allow, blackfox, and ignore the posted limit. If you survive your own high-impact collision, maybe you can explain your reasoning to your family, who will be going through a lot of unnecessary grief and worry over your chances of survival.

I also drive this road every day. The city needs to fix the problem areas and post a weight limit on that road. The damage is all done by the dump trucks hauling the fill dirt to Allen Ott's property. As far a speeding, the speed limit is to slow all thru Eudora. Most drivers drive what the road will allow.

So the SUV struck the tree "Head-on?"

That means the tree and the car were headed for each other before they hit, right?

(As opposed to if they were headed the same direction and the tree stopped suddenly, causing the SUV to hit it from the rear.)

How can you tell which part of the tree is the front?

I drive that road all the time and people often fly around the "rough" area, which just happens to be on a curve, which also happens to take up almost one entire lane. I've had to slam on my breaks to avoid several idiots who were swerving into my lane trying to avoid the HUGH potholes. I've also had to come to almost a complete stop to avoid both the rough area and on-coming traffic. That road really does need repaired, but yes, people need to slow down as well. I'm surprised there hasn't been more accidents.

Maybe, just maybe the drivers could slow down a little. But, that would require people to be in charge or their actions!!!! lol

Wonder if the wreck happened due to the HORRIBLE conditions that 20th street is in?? MAny people have complained to the city and they wont do anything to fix it! All they have done is put up "ruff road" signs.
