Approximate location of accident
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.
