One person was taken to a Kansas City-area hospital by helicopter ambulance Friday night after a three-vehicle accident in the westbound lane of Clinton Parkway near Lawrence Avenue.
A 53-year-old Lawrence man was driving his 1994 Ford Ranger when he struck a vehicle driven by a 70-year-old Lawrence woman. She had been stopped at a red light.
The woman’s 2004 Ford Focus was pushed into the back of a Nissan Quest minivan, which had been stopped in front of her at the light. The Nissan Quest was driven by a 49-year-old Lawrence man, and contained a 55-year-old female passenger.
