A 71-year-old Lawrence man was injured after a one-vehicle rollover accident Thursday afternoon on U.S. Highway 40 about two miles east of the Shawnee County line and 10 miles west of Lawrence.
The crash was reported at 3:10 p.m. at a curve in the highway near East 200 Road. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Donald Wayne Collins was headed east on U.S. 40 in a 1990 Lexus when the car left the road and entered the south shoulder.
Collins over-corrected the vehicle, which caused it to drive across both lanes and enter the north ditch, where the car rolled over and came to rest on its wheels.
Collins, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to a Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center in Topeka, where he was listed in fair condition Thursday night.
