A 25-year-old man on a motorcycle was injured Tuesday in a crash on Clinton Parkway after the car in front of him had recently completed a U-turn and was straddling the center line before changing into the lane, police said.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers ticketed the car’s driver, Chun H. Yang, 24, of Lawrence, for improper lane usage and not having valid insurance. Yang was not injured. The crash occurred about 1:30 p.m. in the westbound lane of Clinton Parkway near Lawrence Avenue.
The motorcyclist, Jarell Schroeder, of Inman, suffered abrasions and lacerations when his motorcycle crashed into the back of Yang’s car. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers took Schroeder, who was wearing a helmet and protective eyewear, to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, McKinley said.
Steve Gutierrez, an LMH nursing supervisor, confirmed that Schroeder had been treated and released as of Tuesday night.
