A two-vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of U.S. Highway 56 and Eighth Street shortly before 3 p.m. Friday. A Baldwin City police officer said an Ottawa man was heading west on his motorcyle on the highway following a car that turned north on Eighth Street. A truck, driven by a Baldwin City woman, turned on to the highway to head east when the motorcycle struck the truck. The motorcycle driver, who initially refused medical treatment, was later taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
