Lawrence crash kills one, injures kids
One person was killed and two children were injured in a Lawrence area crash Thursday afternoon. A semitrailer was eastbound on Pendleton Pike near 56th Street when a smaller box truck slammed into the back of it for an unknown reason, officials say. The box truck bounced off the semitrailer and into the eastbound lane, striking a Chevrolet Avalanche head on. The crash killed the driver of the Avalanche. Two children in the Avalanche were taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital for treatment.
