Crash injures motorcyclist on K-10 in Eudora

A 60-year-old Eudora man was injured Wednesday morning in a motorcycle accident after entering Kansas Highway 10 in Eudora.

Sgt. Chris Casagrande, a Eudora police spokesman, said about 11:06 a.m. Mike Van Dyke was entering the westbound lanes of K-10 on his motorcycle at Church Street in Eudora and eventually changed into the inside lane where a collision occurred with a westbound car about one-third of a mile west of Church Street.

Casagrande said Thursday morning police were still investigating the cause of the crash. The driver of the westbound car, Kim Bridges, 48, of Overland Park, was not injured, he said.

Van Dyke was taken by ground ambulance to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.

Put up the cable barriers, we must protect against unsafe driving! Hope the cyclist is ok!

The cable barriers are scheduled to be installed this fall, from what I last heard. They are great for crossover accidents, but they aren't as great for bikers (and would have done nothing in this accident).

Does anyone know who the cyclist is? I have a lot of friends and family in the area...

Texting? (Sorry, just wanted to beat clickker to it). Best wishes for the cyclist.

Seems to be a prime spot for accidents. :/

Can think of three there (just west of the Eudora exit) off the top of my head...two in the last week.

edit: I see they've changed the story though from what was first reported.

Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story LJW... Why was it if this accident took place on the exit ramp, or southbound Church St, when I drove by east bound on K10 they were picking the bike up from the center median of K10 just EAST of Church St exit and had WEST bound K10 shut down at the east Eudora exit?

Does the LJW even have any reporters left to check facts and report stories???
