Lawrence police briefly closed Kentucky Street outside the Lawrence Aquatic Center Wednesday afternoon after a pedestrian was injured in an accident about 1:30 p.m.
Sgt. Ted Bordman, a patrol shift supervisor, said a 15-year-old girl ran out of a vehicle stopped in the east lane driven by her sister, 19. The 15-year-old girl crossed the street presumably to go to the pool, 747 Ky. A 24-year-old female driving an Audi in the west lane of the one-way street had a green light and did not see the girl, who ran into the passenger side mirror of the Audi, Bordman said.
The girl was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by ambulance with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Bordman said the girl was not crossing the street in the nearby crosswalk.
Police had not ticketed anyone as of 2 p.m. Wednesday, and the accident was still under investigation, he said.
