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.
