A person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a delivery truck on KU’s campus.

The truck struck a pedestrian in the crosswalk at the corner of Jayhawk Boulevard and Sunflower Road around 11:12 a.m. Wednesday, according to Captain Jack Campbell Jr. of the KU Police Department.

“The pedestrian was underneath the truck when first responders arrived,” Campbell said via email.

First responders with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical assisted in getting the pedestrian out, and they were transported to Stormont Vail in Topeka for treatment, Campbell said.

The pedestrian was triaged code yellow, meaning they had injuries that were potentially life-threatening.

KUPD was investigating the crash as of Wednesday afternoon, Campbell said.
