A Lawrence man was taken to a Kansas City Hospital around midnight Tuesday, after a rollover accident just north of Lawrence.

Clint Ott, 22, told Douglas County sheriff's deputies he was driving home when his car hit a rock wall along County Road 438, about 1-1/2 miles west of Kasold Drive, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, sheriff’s spokesman. The 1996 Chevy Lumina rolled several times, ejecting Ott and leaving him with minor injuries.

Lewis said emergency workers transported Ott to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., by ground ambulance. The hospital was unable to provide a condition update for the man on Wednesday.

Sheriff's deputies said they have not determined what caused the accident, which Ott told them he didn't remember happening. The car was traveling eastbound and the accident happened in the westbound lanes of County Road 438.

Traffic in the area was temporarily closed while crews worked to clear the scene.

Let he who is without mistakes cast the first stone Kontum. The brain does have the ability to block traumatic memories from our mind. Could be the case. I don't know for sure, but who are you to judge?

Perhaps he suffered a head trauma when he was ejected from the car? That could wipe out memory of the accident and events just prior to it as well.

Have you ever had something bad happen so fast you don't know what actually occurred? I would say kantum is simply a crotchity old man with nothing better to do than pass judgment on others. Your faceless accusations are amusing, so is the thought your lifeless melancholy drives you to talk bad about a young man whom just had a terrible ACCIDENT. We tend to call that pathetic/weak/cowardly where I'm from. Get well soon Slopes! We are all pulling for you!
