A 27-year-old Lawrence woman was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Friday evening after flipping her car near the intersection of Sixth and Ohio streets.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley said the incident occurred just before 8 p.m. The woman was believed to have been driving southbound on Ohio Street before turning. Her vehicle then struck a parked car and rolled. McKinley said there were no witnesses present at the time of the accident, so police are still not exactly sure how fast the woman had been driving or what events led to the accident. McKinley said the woman’s injuries appeared to be minor.

You don't have to read any further than the word..."She"...

Sounds like simple pure stupidity. You are heading south on Ohio, fail to stop a Stop Sign at 6th, attempt a turn at above or at speed limit, vehicle can roll. Good news is, single vehicle accident. Other news is, 27 year old could still be a student, just slow learner or late starter. Not everyone goes to college straight of HS.

I would be curious what kind of car she was driving. I saw a car going 30 mph hit a pothole, swerve to the curb and flip in Topeka one day. It was a boxy suv.

Perhaps any of the following contributing factors; cell phone usage, applying makeup, eating a donut, reading a book, a little too much alcohol, playing grab-ass, looking at the fall colors, going too fast, brakes failed, avoiding a armadillo, sun blinded her, whatever! She'll need a good story for this one
