Intersection of Clinton Parkway and Crestline Drive
Lawrence police arrested a 23-year-old Kansas University student early Saturday morning on charges of leaving the scene of an accident and operating under the influence following a one-vehicle rollover accident, Sgt. Susan Hadl said.
The incident occurred near the intersection of Clinton Parkway and Crestline Drive around 3:30 a.m. when the suspect drove his 2002 Ford Explorer off the roadway. The vehicle overturned and the suspect fled on foot, Hadl said. However, police arrested the man about 30 minutes later at the man's residence.
"We were sort of just waiting for him," Hadl said.
The suspect was the only occupant of the vehicle during the accident, and he did not sustain any injuries, Hadl said.
The man was booked into the Douglas County Jail and released after posting an $800 bond. The booking log lists the additional charges of failure to report an accident and reckless driving.
