One transported after one-car injury accident on Sixth Street

April 30, 2011


A 28-year-old McLouth man was transferred to Lawrence Memorial Hospital following an injury accident near the intersection of Sixth and Kentucky streets in Lawrence early Saturday morning, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman.

After 4 a.m., a 1997 Chevrolet Impala was traveling north on Kentucky Street at a high speed and couldn't make the turn onto Sixth Street, Bordman said.

The car left the roadway and became airborne, landing on some brush and a retaining wall, coming to rest on an access road in Constant Park, he said.

The driver complained of head pain and was transferred to LMH, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Bordman said.

Kansas University Public Safety officers heard the police's radio traffic, and believed the car to be the same one involved in a brief car chase that began earlier in the 1400 block of Jayhawk Boulevard, Bordman said.

KU Public Safety quickly discontinued the chase before stopping the car, Bordman said.

Investigation into the case continues to see if alcohol was a factor, he said.

Mr. Sevier was Choctaw and Creek Indian. I see his father at the Copan Delaware Pow-wow every Memorial Day. His father lives in Oklahoma now. Mr. Bordmans behavior is referenced because sometimes it doesn't go away especially when one sees a Confederate flag sticker on said officer's truck. LPD has made steps in being better with the indigenous community since the 1990's but this officer still works as LPD which is a reminder of that time. Oh well.
