A 21-year-old Kansas University bicyclist was taken to Watkins Memorial Health Center with nonlife-threatening injuries Monday afternoon after colliding with a vehicle, which drove away from the accident, according to a Lawrence Police Department spokesman.
The student, of Olathe, was riding eastbound on 14th Street as the motorist drove westbound, Sgt. Ted Bordman said. The vehicle turned left in front of the bicyclist, causing a crash that knocked the student from the bike, he said. The vehicle then continued southbound.
As of Monday evening, police had no vehicle or driver information, Bordman said. The victim was treated at the scene and then taken to Watkins.
