A man was killed and two women were injured in a three-vehicle crash on Kansas Highway 10 Monday afternoon in Lawrence, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report.

Much of the stretch locally known as the west leg of the South Lawrence Trafficway — K-10 from the interchange at Iowa Street all the way to Bob Billings Parkway — closed for hours as emergency responders worked at the scene. The crash occurred at K-10 and Wakarusa Drive, according to Lawrence police.

The crash report says Natiya D. Williams, 27, of Lawrence, was westbound on the highway in a Dodge SUV just before 4 p.m. Monday. There were three juveniles in Williams’ vehicle, but information about their identities and conditions was not included in the crash report.

The report says that for an unknown reason, Williams’ SUV crossed the center line and went into the eastbound lane, striking a Nissan Sentra driven by Paul C. Duncan, 58, of Lawrence. Duncan died as a result of the crash, and Williams suffered suspected serious injuries, according to the report. Williams was taken to the University of Kansas hospital.

Angela D. Chance, 44, of Lawrence, was driving a GMC SUV and ran over debris in the roadway, according to the report. Chance was taken to LMH Health with suspected minor injuries.

All adults in the crash were wearing seat belts, according to the report.

Traffic was backed up on the highway and in town. Some drivers decided to leave the standstill traffic on westbound K-10 by turning around through the median.
