A Lawrence man was taken by Life Star helicopter to a Kansas City area hospital Saturday afternoon after losing control of his motorcycle. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

I was there when this happened and both the victim and another driver in a truck behind the motorcycle (which happened to be his daughter) were both traveling around 60 miles per hour in a 30 mile an hour zone and had also just run a stop sign before the accident which happened on a 20 mile per hour curve!!! I truly hope he is okay, but there is no reason to be going that fast...it could have been a child he hit and he almost hit another driver head on in this case. Lesson: SLOW DOWN and if you ride a motorcylce, PLEASE wear a helmet!!
I live on this curve and way to many people go flying through here way to fast. There are ALWAYS kids ranging from around 3 to 11 crossing back and forth to each others houses to play. People need to watch this curve. Next time it might just be a child. We've had cars in the trees, cars hit fences, cars hit mailboxes, & now this. WATCH YOUR SPEED!!!!
The curve is tough when your not paying much attention and still going 30, let alone faster.
