A 21-year-old Lawrence man was cited for jaywalking after he was injured Thursday afternoon when he was struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross 24th Street.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Yiwen Yin got off a Kansas University bus in the 1400 block of West 24th Street at about 4:48 p.m. Thursday and started to cross the street in front of the bus.
Yin, who was not in a crosswalk, was struck by a westbound vehicle driven by a 23-year-old Lawrence man, McKinley said. Yin was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.
