A 12-year-old Baldwin City girl was treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital after she was injured in an accident Tuesday near Vinland.
Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said Kaitlyn Stockdale was taken to the hospital after the vehicle she was riding in Tuesday afternoon struck a dump truck that was stopped in the road in the 1800 block of North 700 Road, which is County Road 460 near Vinland. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata she was traveling in was headed west. The driver of the Hyundai, 52-year-old Robert Stockdale, swerved to avoid the truck in the road, but the passenger side of the vehicle made contract with the truck, Lewis said. The crash occurred at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, and the accident report was not yet complete Wednesday, Lewis said.
