A bicyclist was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Tuesday morning after being injured in an accident near Ninth Street and Emery Road, said Douglas County Fire and Medical Division Chief Doug Green.
Green said medics believe the bicyclist lost control on some ice leaving an apartment parking lot.
Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the bicyclist was not struck by any passing vehicles. Some motorists did stop to help the injured person, he said.
Traffic on Ninth Street was briefly reduced to one lane as a police officer directed alternating lanes of traffic to pass through. All lanes were open as of 8:45 a.m.
The accident happened in front of University Terrace Apartments just west of Emery Road about 8:15 a.m.
