Critical injuries reported in single-vehicle crash
• March 12 — DUI suspected in weekend crash in west Lawrence
The Lawrence Police Department is investigating after a sport utility vehicle was found crashed in the ditch near Trail Road and South Folks Road early Sunday morning.
Police arrived on scene around 4:45 a.m. and reported the red SUV was crashed about 30 feet off the road.
Radio traffic from officers indicated the driver, only described as a female, was alone in the vehicle with critical injuries.
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical responded and forced open the damaged door to remove the driver.
Medics transported the injured driver to Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka.
The University of Kansas Public Safety Office also responded to the crash scene after Lawrence officers recognized the crashed vehicle matched the description of an SUV which failed to yield for a traffic stop earlier in the morning on Clinton Parkway near Crestline Drive. As of this report, it is unknown if this is the same vehicle.
Lawrence police are investigating the possibility that alcohol may have been involved.
