Douglas County Sheriff’s investigators believe 40-year-old Baldwin City man injured in a scooter accident had struck some potholes on a gravel road Thursday night.

Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said Darrin Pease was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred about 7:40 p.m. an access road on the west side of the Douglas County State Fishing Lake just north of Baldwin City. Pease was flown by a LifeStar helicopter ambulance to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

Hornberger said a preliminary investigation indicates Pease was driving a 2005 Yamaha scooter on an access road adjacent to East 1814 Road when he struck the potholes and lost control of the scooter.
