Motorcyclist injured after Barker-19th roundabout crash

A 23-year-old Lawrence man was injured early Friday morning after he crashed his motorcycle into the roundabout at 19th Street and Barker Avenue.

Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Michael D. Moss told police he was headed south on Barker Avenue in a 2005 Suzuki SV-650 while he was driving “too quickly” to negotiate the roundabout. The crash occurred just after 2 a.m.

Moss was wearing a helmet, and he suffered an injury to the lower part of his left leg.

McKinley said the accident report indicates officers have not issued any citations but that blood test results are pending.
