Emergency crews responded to an accident Wednesday afternoon involving a semitrailer and a car on Kansas Highway 10, in east Lawrence.

The car was trapped under the semitrailer, according to dispatchers. The driver of the car suffered minor injuries.

The accident occurred just before 4 p.m. near the entrance to the East Hills Business Park.

Freeway on both ends traffic lights in the middle. I thought that's how all Kansas highways are designed.

The state did a study of this intersection and decided at that point it didn't need a light. The businesses and employees of the business park have begged for a light and the requests have all been denied. What does it take to get the point across to the state that this is a dangerous intersection?

I drove by this yesterday and couldn't even make out what kind of car it was. All I know was that it was blue as it was already loaded up on the tow's flat bed & was pretty smashed up. My son just graduated last week & moved to Topeka. Guess what part of his graduation present was? A blue 4 door, Ford Focus. So imagine my horror when I woke up this a.m. to read the LJW & saw the video for this story! I thought I was going to throw up! I called my son immediately who (thank God), answered the phone. Long story short, it wasn't him in this accident. He's fine, the car is fine and he'll be home this weekend for more graduation festivities! I am SO happy to hear that the person that was in this accident had only minor injuries, because from what I saw yesterday, the damage to that car was beyond "minor".

They need to finish the bypass not put a freaking stop light on the STATE HIGHWAY (not the city of lawrence).

I don't care who is responsible for it. They need a damn light there.

one eyed wilbur?

Since when does Lawrence service K-10. Get out of your basement and look at the highway sign. It has a big Sunflower on it. Which means 'State of Kansas." Wow. If you have not the knowledge to make educated posts then stop wasting your time.

The state really does need to put a light out there. Every time I drive by there and see those big LRM trucks trying to pull out and turn left during morning rush hour traffic, I cringe. I'm not even going to talk about the guy with the big bobcat. Yikes!

It was crazy. I saw the trucker siting in his cabin lookin pretty awful ashamed waiting to get a ticket. I swear it looked like someone could've easily been killed. It was intense. He tried to pull out in front of K10.

Now there is a Ford Focus convertible.

I think frontage roads on each side of 10hwy with access at Noria & at Farmland/COOP would make a big differance.

This morning I saw a nasty 3 car pile-up on Stateline and a woman take off out of the quick stop with the gas nozzle still in her Escalade ripping the hose out of the pump---all in a matter of about 5 minutes. Nanny nanny boo boo.......exciting times!

bad bad. Bruce Wayne a commuter?

that road was poorly designed. when leaving the road from the jail, crossing to the north to go west, it is impossible to oncoming traffic from the east. The hill should have been cut down.'

There needs to be a light at the entrance to East Hills.

Get with it Lawrence.

This is just like the dirt road to Johnny's. All of the cheap!
