LAWRENCE – Lawrence police are searching for a light-colored car involved in a hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, an 18-year-old Kansas University student was crossing the street in the 700 block of Massachusetts Street when she was hit about 2 a.m. Hadl said she hit the windshield of the car.
