Two people were injured in a crash near the intersection of Kansas Highway 10 and West Sixth Street in Lawrence early Sunday, according to police.
The crash was reported at 12:15 a.m. Sunday, according to the PulsePoint app. Scanner traffic indicated that the crash may have been connected to road rage.
“First responders found one vehicle in the grassy area off K-10 along with two people who had been ejected from the car,” Laura McCabe, a spokesperson for the Lawrence Police Department, said via email Sunday afternoon.
“A witness told police two cars passed him in a no passing zone and he later saw one flip several times and land in the grassy area while the other continued on,” McCabe continued.
First responders at the scene had reported over the scanner that there were two patients triaged “code red,” meaning they suffered possibly life-threatening injuries. However, McCabe said “the injured women were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”
McCabe said the last report she got stated that accident investigators from LPD were working to identify the second vehicle and she will get an update on their progress Monday morning.
