A woman was transported via air-ambulance to Overland Park Regional Medical Center after being struck by a vehicle at 1015 W. 23rd St.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Myron Brady said the woman was crossing 23rd Street about 5:50 p.m. in front of Dillons when a vehicle turning left onto 23rd Street struck her.

The women was originally assessed to have life-threatening head injuries at the scene, but the injuries have since been downgraded to nonlife-threatening.

The woman was not using a crosswalk and was at fault, Brady said.

JackMcKee distracted/inattentive driving is an infraction. The LEO determined that the driver was following all laws. Take it up with him/her.

And right there is the problem Jack, people who are walking many times don't have the means to by justice like you do. It is clear the motorist ran someone down and you can't do that if you are paying attention unless, like a deer she darted quickly across the road.

JackMcKee 0 minutes ago I can't take credit for 500 years of jurisprudence.

The world defined to be based around the car has absolutely nothing to do with philosophical legal history. The winners decided the car would be given preference in everything and the laws written or more so enforced accordingly. Look at the condition of the sidewalks in town, left up to home owners which builds animosity while we just can't build enough streets. Whine endlessly about the T forgetting there are many people who rely on it but not important, the car rules.

"If the driver was intoxicated, speeding, texting, or any breaking any other law the analysis would be different. "

Those again are legally defined ways of being distracted but there are others, a person can just careless. In your perfect life I suppose you haven't experienced that but it happens.

JackMcKee 2 minutes ago The driver wasn't careless. The LEO on the scene made that determination. I trust his/her judgement far more than an internet jockey.

According to the Kansas Handbook he was careless. By standards of decency, he was careless. It happens all the time in Lawrence and only when they hurt someone do they take a different tone. See it all the time.

You keep commenting how people driving vehicles are allowed to break rules all the time. However, thousands upon thousands of drivers are pulled over in traffic stops every day around the country. If a driver does something illegal that is witnessed by a police officer, they are going to get pulled over. Yes, many drivers break the laws that regulate driving every day and don't get pulled over. However, that is because their law breaking is not witnessed by a police officer. This is not the same as being allowed to break the rules.

Using the same logic, pedestrians are allowed to break the rules all the time too. How many pedestrians each day, all across the country, jaywalk? In fact, I would venture to guess in most areas, a pedestrian jaywalking, that is witnessed by a police officer, would be less likely to be contacted by that officer for doing their illegal activity. In the end, it's all about personal responsibility. If one engages in risky/illegal behavior, they must be responsible for any consequences that come from that behavior.

JackMcKee 1 minute ago good lord. This discussion has hit a new low.

Really? What about the law that has put innocent people to death? I'm sorry, what is right should be the goal in society and there is much discussion about this on sights I'm sure you aren't interested in but stand by your law, right or wrong, doesn't matter.

Jack, I can see why you are so adamant about the rec center since you want to make the streets too dangerous for runners, bikers, and pedestrians. Perhaps that is your goal, to force people to use gyms. Do you have a financial stake in this?

So Jack has managed to keep the pedestrian in the segregated box, they actually have a higher standard of responsibility than the person in the car because the natural occurring distractions when driving (limited ability to hear and see) has now made the motorist the protected class, unless of course they hurt another motorist in which case they are equal footing. We don't enforce the laws so pedestrians aren't constantly dealing with rude behavior by motorist and if they don't play by the rules they are given they are fair game. I like your concept of a fair society.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

If i close my eyes while walking across the street and do damage to vehicle illegally parked in the crosswalk I'm no different than the motorist who is not paying attention.

Yep, when you can afford to have the law on your side anything goes. You've got me there, what's right isn't important, what laws written by those who benefit from it is all that matters. If you think running people down out of carelessness is ok then that says it all.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

And verity wins the award for upholding the status quo, carcentric view of the world, a view from the climate controlled car that can continue to break laws all the time, just go sit at an intersection and watch, but the pedestrian is not only threatened to keep in line by laws that require going out of their way to the designated crossing spots that can be many blocks away but are threatened with physical injury if they don't play along and like I've mentioned, even if they do play along. Let's remember the bicyclist last week as one example.

verity 1 year, 2 months ago

We may have a prize here for the thread with the most ridiculous comments of all time.

Of course drivers should be looking out for both pedestrians and other drivers who do stupid things, but the person disobeying the law is at fault and you can't always avoid another person's stupidity and/or illegal actions, no matter how careful you are. Even if drivers are legally always supposed to stop for a pedestrian anywhere, they may not see them or be able to stop in time.

On the other hand, even a pedestrian acting legally is going to get the worst of the deal if hit by a motorized vehicle. I'd rather be safe than right.

2

JackMcKee 1 year, 2 months ago

Let's look at the evidence. Pedestrian crossing street illegally, per police report, is injured. Which party is liable? In law, this is called this negligence per se. It means the person breaking the law is automatically liable. The driver was not ticketed, therefore, the driver did not violate any statutes or ordinances. There is no debate here, the law is clear.

cateastrophe 58 minutes ago Actually it sounds like both are at fault. She was crossing a busy street in the middle of the block and he was turning left, crossing traffic to merge with other traffic, which means he failed to notice the road wasn't clear when he turned. You should never drive your car onto a road assuming it is clear. And you should never cross a busy street in the middle of a block.

This is the reasonable outcome, both are at fault. This should not be another case in Lawrence where the injured pedestrian is the only one blamed. If we aren't going to ticket careless drivers then by God ticket them when they injure people.

More:

  1. Be on the look out for pedestrians in order to avoid injuring them, regardless of who has the right-of-way.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

From the Kansas Driver's License Handbook:

The driver’s responsibility is greater than that of the pedestrian, since a motor vehicle with its greater weight and speed is much more destructive. A pedestrian sometimes does thoughtless or foolish things. But, in spite of this, if your vehicle is under control at all times you should be able to avoid hitting him. The pedestrians killed and injured are usually persons who are unfamiliar with automobiles or those who are not as alert as the average person. Older persons who move slowly and cannot see or hear well are frequently involved in such accidents. Children are the next group most frequently involved in pedestrian accidents. They do not realize the danger of playing in or crossing the streets

ohjayhawk 1 year, 2 months ago

First off, this is unfortunate incident for both individuals involved. However, to me, this all comes down to the laws. If this incident would have happened while the pedestrian was in the crosswalk, and had the right-of-way (i.e. the walk signal), and a driver had struck her, the driver would have been at fault. Conversely, when the pedestrian crosses in the middle of the street and gets struck, it is the pedestrian who is afoul of the laws and should be held responsible. It's a two-way street (pun partially intended). You can't say that motorists are always to blame. If they are abiding the laws of the road, they are not at fault.

Also, before you deride me as a "motorist", keep in mind that the entire time I spent out there going to school, I was without a car. I walked EVERYWHERE I needed to go. About 3/4 of a mile to work, about 3/4 of a mile to school, over a mile to get downtown. I did my share of jaywalking at times (on 23rd Street), but I also realized that, by doing so, I was running a huge risk, and that if, heaven forbid something happened, I would only have myself to blame.

Once again, you miss the point: I just want to watch you stand on the curb and fake drivers out. My statement had nothing to do with random kids or praying for motorists.

Really it is nothing but standing right on the curb, that should be enough to make people anticipate what if. A deer running out on the highway is one thing but a human being on a 30mph street is entirely different.

mom_of_three 12 minutes ago SO if a pedestrian walks out in front of you, you are supposed to be able to squeal on your breaks and just Stop no matter what? There are laws for a reason

She was in the turning lane, not like she just came out of nowhere. It is called paying attention. Kind of like the woman in Gardner that mowed over that little boy because at 7 years old he should have known better since the woman was in a school zone, in the middle so the kid had to cross a lane of traffic, just magically popped up out of no where. Paying attention, anticipating, it was part of the driver training that wasn't very good to begin with and for most people long ago and forgotten.

Right and when it is a kid that does it you'll be there with your prayers for the driver. I guess if being a bad driver by not driving defensively and not asking a lot of "what ifs" is what you strive to achieve for then we have done a good job. People really should be on trains if they want to go fast without needing to worry about stopping.

jamea0216 wins points for identifying why motorist get so righteous about this, because they know they to are poor drivers and that this could happen to them and need to make sure the burden of proof is placed on the most vulnerable. Think people are safe legally proceeding at the light? What about the bicyclist creamed last week legally proceeding across Iowa street? All I'm asking motorist is to stop and think about the situation from other than the comfortable, climate controlled seat in the car. Really, a little compassion to those who feel there are other ways to get around is all that is needed. Everybody is in a hurry to get home and every night there are accidents that occasionally include pedestrians and cyclist, most car on cars are not even reported. It is a real problem that we must face so these kind of accidents decline.

Jamea CallsHim 1 year, 2 months ago

If the woman were crossing legally in the crosswalk when the light was green for her she would have had no reason to be stopped in the turning lane. Crosswalks are put in to protect pedestrians, not only from people who aren't paying attention but from peple who don't have the time to stop or simply make the mistake of not seeing something. Accidents happen and no one is perfect. I do not know one person who hasn't curb checked or did something because they miscalculated or for a mere second wasn't giving their 100% attention.

I wish the best for the woman who was injured but I also hope that the person who accidently hit her is doing well. It is a traumatic situation for both of them and hopefully they both have learned their lessons. She will cross in a crosswalk and the driver do everything that he can to give his full attention while driving and if he can't will think twice about getting in the vehicle.

It could happen to anyone.

" buckjennings 12 minutes ago

It's sure easy for those addicted to their motorized easy chairs to pontificate to those out on foot, eh? Often it's the poorest among us who walk, but then there are those who realize that climate change isn't some joke and who are trying to make a difference. Naturally, either of these groups are fair game in our society. The poor just didn't want success badly enough and deserve their fate. And the real greenies (not the phonies in their Priuses) are a threat to our cherished Way of LifeTM. They're no good, no how."

So true, the people who have to walk in the weather, deal with crappy sidewalks, places where rain runs over the sidewalks because we need to make it convenient for the motorist but by golly a pedestrian tries to do something for a little convenience the motorist come on to preach the law as though they understand what that is! What a joke and perfectly reflects the nature of Lawrence.

" consumer1 11 minutes ago YOu can get a ticket for crossing in the wrong part of the street, or by walking in the street. It is called pedestrian in the roadway. It is sad we have laws to protect people who should know better.''

And what do we call cars in the cross walk or past the stop sign at intersections? Cars parked on sidewalks, cars running reds? The list goes on, come champ are you saying it is ok to kick in the door of motorist breaking the law as just an unfortunate accident? What penalty do the poor motorist pay for their transgressions? Nothing is that answer, time for that to change.

bailee, so sorry to miss the suffer of the motorist thinking about the poor woman in the hospital. Yes prayers to the motorist yet what about prayers for all the pedestrians who have to deal quietly with the rude and dangerous behavior of motorist, many times intentionally threatening? Is it too much to ask people to step outside of their comfortable box and consider what others are dealing with? Why don't you demonstrate using crosswalks in your daily life, start walking everywhere in Lawrence and find out what it is like to be trapped by roads built for the convenience of motorist that generously allow the pedestrian a chance to cross many blocks apart.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

KC that is like missing the trees in the forest, do you ever notice all the cars that constantly violate the law? It blows my mind that motorist can find the random and rare pedestrian, skateboarder, or bicyclist but miss what is constantly going on around them. There are so many car accidents in town the JW doesn't cover them so maybe the problem is extremely poor understand of what the motorist is suppose to be doing.

@KG First, go take a chill pill and calm down. Second, unless you were standing right there when the accident happened, you have no idea of the traffic, road and other conditions. So, don't make assumptions. Third, IMO the woman made an unwise choice, danced with chance and lost. She violated the law and is responsible for the accident. The same would apply to two teenagers I saw skateboarding in the middle of Mass Street last Saturday afternoon.

I think its ridiculous not to consider how horrible the driver of the car must feel. Even if you are paying full attention - not on the phone, not under any influences, driving the speed limit, ect. accidents do happen. I hope the pedestrian recovers quickly, but in the mean time Lawrence, lets just use the crosswalks. It's really not that hard.

6

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

Of course, because in Lawrence if you aren't in a car you are fair game. Must make you proud to be reduced to the level of a barbarian. And what about the motorist, why can't they follow the speed limit and stop instead of running reds? That's all ok huh? Might as well not bring up driving according to the conditions which as you said it is busy which should mean driving slower and more defensively? I don't mean to bother you with good driving skills though, continue on like you are all that matters.

I wish the JW would do some pieces on urban planning and have discussions on mixed transportation options. It is a real shame Lawrence could be a real mecca, another Madison or Minneapolis supporting everybody's rights to get where they are going, choosing which means they want.

2

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

"Rabble rabble rabble rabble. Every stop light on 23rd street has a crosswalk. Also, it's not hard to see that traffic is busy and it might not be smart to cross where you are trying to cross. You can't blame the motorist for legally using the center turn lane. The blame falls on the NEGLIGENT pedestrian that decided to cross a busy 4 lane HIGHWAY during rush hour.(technically that part of 23rd st is also K-10) It's sad that it happened, but people make unsafe decisions everyday. Learn from it and become better."

It amazes me that people will come on and voluntarily admit that the motorist doesn't need to drive according to the conditions and can legally run people over in the street, whether they are there legally or not. That is what we have been reduced to, barbarians. And for those who think the crosswalks which seem close sitting on their can in a motorized vehicle ought to start walking full time and see how "convenient" they are. And again, if you are stopped in the crosswalk can I accidentally kick your door in? You know, you are stopped illegally.

3

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

Yes, by God, she was standing in the motorist way who has the right to run her down. What a civil society Lawrence is. It is more than four lanes by the way with the massive turn lane which of course, if you studied or cared about urban planning, creates huge problems for pedestrians. Again, even if she went to the crosswalk she will still face the same issues and deal with the snarling motorist blocking the turn lane or flying to get through the red. When will you apologist start making observations about all the illegal motorist actions? Again, if the pedestrian encounters a car in the crosswalk can we damage it?

2

jafs 1 year, 2 months ago

I find it hard to believe that the pedestrian would be 100% at fault here.

Drivers are supposed to yield to pedestrians, even if they're not in crosswalks, from my understanding.

Even if the pedestrian has some fault, I'd say it's shared somewhat by the driver - generally called comparative negligence.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

You might think our phony "green" commissioner might have concern about the dangers for bicyclist and pedestrians in this town but he too is a motorist who thinks biking and walking are things you do as recreation in scenic locations. Too bad that's the best Lawrence can do for being "green".

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

I have done research in town standing right on the curb acting like I might enter the street to test reactions of motorist in this town. Almost always there is no reaction, none, not to slow down, move out of the way, nothing. In this town people believe they are entitled, they can run redlights, speed, and ignore potential dangers. What we really need is a whole new process of licensing motorist that requires intensive training and when you screw up you walk. Once more people are walking the attitude will change.

blizzard 1 year, 2 months ago

Just to clarify some of the story's missing items (since I witnessed the event & called 911 from a Dillons phone): The pedestrian was in the middle turn lane on 23rd @ 5:45pm when a SUV making a legal turn into that lane struck the pedestrian. She was not hit again by another vehicle, she was underneath the SUV's front end. Unfortunately, she made a poor decision on a VERY busy street at a VERY busy time of day and I wish that I could go back to prevent her from doing so, but clearly I can not. I offer her & her family my heartfelt prayers & a speedy recovery, and also to the young man driving the SUV who was simply trying to merge with traffic in rush hour @ dusk who now has to live with that horrible sight/sound for the rest of his life.

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

I remember when getting my license learning that people are should drive according to the conditions and look for potential problems. Getting a motorcycle license that idea is magnified even more yet in Lawrence you can pass buses with never considering someone might walk out in front of it, it is legal in Lawrence and you can speed down residential streets, even if they are wet, even if during times kids might be going to school or playing, all legal in Lawrence because those people don't get tickets but if you are ran down absentmindedly walking out in front of a bus or an old man trying to cross 6th street anywhere except one of the few "official" crossings or the lowest form in life to Lawrence citizens, a bus passenger, trying to get to their car on 23rd you will be ticketed, you will be not only ran down but spanked by the city.

2

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

Lawrence continues to build turn lanes for the convenience of the motorist, widening the streets, making it dangerous (doesn't matter if you are in a crosswalk or not, do some research and watch where cars stop at intersections) while doing nothing for pedestrians accept giving them tickets in the hospital for interfering with the motorist who was racing to beat the redlight. Happens everyday all over Lawrence yet the pedestrian, fair game in Lawrence, gets the tickets in this town. Classy cowtown Lawrence is.

2

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

It is really something to go to cities as busy as Lawrence that isn't made up of a redneck culture (and this includes Prius drivers since they are often times driving the same way in this town) who respect there are more than one way to get places. Heck, I've been in places in Kansas often defined as redneck that the motorist are more respectful than in Lawrence where as is demonstrated by the comments here, the pedestrian is fair game and for those of us who do use the crosswalk, even there they are fair game because in Lawrence the car rules.

2

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

It is really something that the pedestrian is lectured to walk out of their way, many place walking blocks out of their way to get to the official crossing, to deal with cars stopped in the crosswalk and running redlights because, darn it, they deserve getting hit yet the cars that constantly run reds, whine about any detour or traffic slow down they deal with while sitting on their can in a climate controlled vehicle are allowed to break laws all the time. Why is the pedestrians time less important than those in cars? What a juvenile, selfish view of the world motorist have. I'd love to see strict traffic law enforcement in this town but then we'd hear the same people saying pedestrians are fair game because they are out of their box whine about speed traps and tickets they should be getting now!

2

KiferGhost 1 year, 2 months ago

So in Lawrence pedestrians are fair game if they aren't in the crosswalk? So when cars are stopped or trying to make a right turn on a redlight and blocking the crosswalk it is legal for the pedestrian to kick the door in of that offending car which is a regularly occurring event in Lawrence?

lawrencian 1 year, 2 months ago

I didn't realize that pedestrians are automatically at fault if they cross a street somewhere other than a marked cross walk. I use one whenever I can, especially downtown, but if I have to walk nearly 2-5 blocks to FIND a crosswalk, such as on some parts of 23rd Street, it is hard to feel like I have the time or energy to go that far out of my way. (Dillon's notwithstanding, in that area you don't have to go that far...)

1

cateastrophe 1 year, 2 months ago

Technically she is at fault since she wasn't using a crosswalk. Doesn't matter if she was getting off the bus unless she is a child getting off a school bus. But everyone pushes their luck I guess. Hope she makes a full recovery.

Bigdog66046 1 year, 2 months ago

  1. I hope she makes a full recovery!
  2. I wish "students" would stop taking prime parking in the dillons lot why the ride the JO to Kansas City, and have been telling Dillons they need to address these, because it makes it harder to shop there during the day!
  3. People need to learn NOT to try and cross 23rd using the vehicle turn lane as a "safe" spot to stand as cars fly by in both directions. Hard lesson to learn, but hope other will learn from her mistake, but i will guess people will continue the same dangerous and illegal behavior tomorrow. Again hope she has a full recovery and can learn from this! And hope the driver of the vehicle is doing ok also. Must be hard for them having hit someone.

I saw this accident just after it happened. He was lying in the turn lane in front of a van or SUV like he had been waiting to cross and someone wasn't paying attention when they went to turn or he stepped out in front of the car. Either way I hope he'll be alright. Sending positive energy his way.
