In a college town like Lawrence, Kansas, it's not uncommon for alcohol or illegal drugs to play a part in these dangerous crashes. One person was killed and another hospitalized with a serious injury after a t-bone collision on Clinton Parkway in between Inverness and Crossgate. The accident happened around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Lawrence Police shut down Clinton Parkway for a while to try and figure out what happened.
Maybe you work late or maybe you're heading home from a friends house, a party or a bar. There are a lot of reasons you might be driving around late at night, but there is no reason not to be 100% focused on the road. However, drowsy driving can really limit your reaction time without you even realizing it.
Other factors that cause late night accidents include driving under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, distracted driving, texting and driving and failing to obey traffic signals.
