Two people were extricated from two vehicles after a head-on collision in the 900 block of Maine Street at around 2:15 p.m. Friday.
Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley said that according to witnesses, a white sport utility vehicle, heading south, ran a red light at Ninth Street, then collided with a four-door maroon car about midway down the 900 block of Maine Street.
McKinley said they believe the SUV was traveling at a high speed.
The driver of the SUV was extricated, as well as the driver of the car. Another person, who was a passenger in the car, was also injured.
McKinley said all three would probably be transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police will interview the driver of the SUV at the hospital in an attempt to determine if alcohol or drugs were a factor.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Craig Shanks the investigation into the accident is ongoing and more information isn't likely to be available until Monday.
