Police have released the identities of the two men involved in a fatal crash Monday night in Lawrence.
Stephen Douglass, 49, of Eudora was killed in the two vehicle accident, while Jordan White, 23, of Lawrence was injured in the accident.
Around 10:42 p.m. White was driving a 2017 Nissan eastbound in the 1200 block of East 15th Street when he hit a 1999 Ford Ranger, driven by Douglass, Lawrence Police Sgt. Amy Rhoads said in a written response to questions.
Douglass was leaving the East Lawrence Center, 1245 E. 15th St., at the time of the crash.
When emergency responders arrived on the scene Douglass was unconscious and the Nissan's engine was reportedly on fire. Police removed Douglass, but CPR did not revive him.
White was conscious after the crash and witnesses reported seeing him taken to a nearby lot and placed into a Life Star helicopter.
Police believe White was not wearing a seat belt when the accident occurred. Police believe Douglass was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Rhoads said police are still investigating the crash and additional information was not immediately available.
