Authorities are responding to a one-vehicle rollover accident on U.S. Highway 59 just south of the intersection of North 1000 Road, two miles south of Lawrence.

At 4:36 p.m. Saturday, Lawrence-Douglas County Emergency Dispatch received a call reporting the rollover in the southbound lane of the highway. Emergency dispatch said one person was transported to Overland Park Regional Medical Center via ambulance with nonlife-threatening injuries.

I came by there on way home from the game and it looked like a full-blown NASCAR deal. "Non-life threatening" sure doesn't describe the scene and that's a good thing. I bet everybody was belted in.

we saw what looked like a sliver toyota or foreign car looking wagon up on it's side as the corner came around near the overpass and the uphill part of US 59 in the passing lane southbound near the median. there was no windshield left and much of the roof around the windshield was caved in.
