Bicylist injured after colliding with vehicle on East 23rd Street

A 29-year-old Lawrence man riding a bicycle down the 900 block of East 23rd Street was sent to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Tuesday night with a nonlife-threatening injury after colliding with a vehicle.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, both the vehicle, driven by a 49-year-old Baldwin City man, and the bicycle were traveling east down the road, with the driver in the center lane and the bicyclist on the far right, near the curb. The bicyclist attempted to change lanes to the inside when the two hit each other, Bordman said.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital was unable to provide an update on the bicyclist’s condition. The driver was not injured.
