A 73-year-old Lawrence man was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Monday morning after a one-vehicle crash in the 500 block of Lawrence Avenue. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said James Patterson’s northbound vehicle left the street to the east and struck a tree.

He was taken to the hospital because officers believed the accident was possibly related to a medical condition, but Patterson’s injuries were not believed to be life threatening, Sarna said. Officers were continuing to investigate the accident Monday, and no citations were issued at the scene.

An LMH nursing supervisor Monday evening said Patterson was in fair condition.
