500 block of Highway 40

A LifeStar helicopter was called to the scene of an injury accident south of Lecompton on Monday afternoon.

According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, two Bonner Springs residents were riding their motorcycle eastbound on Highway 40 when the vehicle left the roadway and overturned.

Gary Titsworth, 63, and Ruth Titsworth, 62, were taken to Stormont-Vail Healthcare in Topeka about 2:30 p.m. Monday. A Stormont-Vail representative Monday evening said she could not release information regarding the victims' conditions.

Both riders were reported to have been wearing helmets.

My bets on 1) somebody pulled out in front of 'em or 2) somebody passing cut them off. Any takers?

Actually none of the above happened! And I know this because I was there. So people need to stop making accusations on what happened.
