Two people, including a 3-year-old child, suffered minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Iowa Street this afternoon.
The accident occurred about 12:30 p.m. Monday in the crosswalk on the north side of the intersection of 25th and Iowa Streets, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. The child and an adult were walking east across Iowa Street when an eastbound vehicle struck them while turning north onto Iowa Street, McKinley said. Witnesses told police the traffic signal had flashed "walk" for the pedestrians.
Police had not publicly identified either the pedestrians or the driver Monday afternoon. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Chief Mark Bradford said the pedestrians suffered minor injuries.
