A 34-year-old Lawrence woman was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital after a motorcycle accident Wednesday morning just east of Midland Junction.
Lorraine Hilleary failed to negotiate a curve while traveling north on U.S. Highway 24 at about 2:20 a.m. Wednesday, said Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Lewis on Wednesday.
Her boyfriend drove her to Lawrence Memorial Hospital after the accident, Lewis said. Law enforcement officers were notified of the accident at about 4 a.m., and Hilleary was later taken to a Kansas City area hospital.
