One person was taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital following a two-vehicle accident on Kasold Drive Wednesday evening.

According to Lawrence police Sgt. Randy Roberts, the accident occurred near the 2200 block shortly before 6 p.m. Roberts said a 27-year-old Lawrence man was driving southbound on Kasold Drive when he drifted left of the center line. He then struck a vehicle driven by a 33-year-old Lawrence woman.

Police temporarily blocked traffic in the northbound lanes of Kasold while tow crews worked to clear the scene. The woman's silver SUV had heavy side damage while the man's passenger vehicle left the roadway and come to rest in some small trees on the east side of the road.

The man fled the scene following the accident and was apprehended by police a few blocks away. He was transported to LMH with nonlife-threatening injuries. Roberts said the use of alcohol was being investigated as a possible factor in the incident.

The woman was not injured during the accident.
