One man received nonlife-threatening injuries Friday after a collision between his motorcycle and a vehicle about 8 p.m. near the intersection of Peterson and Edinburgh roads, according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Craig Shanks.
Shanks said the motorcycle was eastbound on Peterson Road when an eastbound vehicle hit its back tire, causing the motorcycle to crash. The rider was airlifted to a Kansas City hospital. Shanks said police are considering speed and alcohol as possible factors for the accident.
