A 20-year-old Leawood man who allegedly struck a 12-year-old Lawrence girl with his SUV near the intersection of 11th and New Hampshire streets earlier this month was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk in connection with the incident, Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman Kim Murphree said.
On July 16, Robert Braddock allegedly struck the girl about 4:35 p.m. as she was walking in a crosswalk near the Douglas County Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, 111 E. 11th St. The girl was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries.
Murphree said Braddock was issued the citation on July 22. No other charges have been filed in connection with the incident.
