A 58-year-old Lawrence man was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Wednesday evening after being involved in a car accident near Sixth and Louisiana Streets.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Randy Roberts, officers were dispatched to the scene just before 8 p.m. The man had been driving eastbound on Sixth Street when he drifted left of the center line. Roberts said the man then turned left to head north on Louisiana Street and struck a car, then a tree. He was transported by ambulance to LMH with nonlife-threatening injuries.
Roberts said the use of alcohol was being investigated as a contributing factor in the incident.
