Accident at Junction injures Baldwin motorcycle driver

July 25, 2006

Steven Jackson, 42, Baldwin City, was flown to Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., after his motorcycle crashed into a concrete culvert Monday near Baldwin Junction.

Jackson swerved off U.S. Highway 59 for unknown reasons around 2:20 p.m. Monday, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. The accident happened less than 100 feet from the intersection of U.S. Highways 59 and 56, also known as Baldwin Junction.

The air ambulance landed near the intersection after Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical crews decided Jackson's injuries were severe enough to require helicopter rescue. A condition report on Jackson was not available Tuesday morning.

Jackson was not wearing a helmet, the Highway Patrol reported.

Pictures from the accident will be in Thursday's Signal.
