A 22-year-old Lawrence man was arrested on suspicion of DUI and several other charges Tuesday night after a rollover accident in the 1200 block of Connecticut St.
Yair Mendoza Cantu was booked into Douglas County Jail about 10 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident involving injury, failure to possess a driver's license and insurance, and DUI.
Police responded to the accident about 9:50 p.m., where witnesses told police an erratic driver in a silver, four-door 2002 Dodge struck a parked car and rolled the vehicle over before fleeing on foot, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman.
Cantu was found injured in a nearby alley and transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. He later was taken to jail.
Cantu was released on $900 bond.
