LAWRENCE (WIBW)- A Baldwin City woman suffered serious injuries after a crash in Douglas County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 53-year old Patricia D. Shay was driving a Ford pickup west on U.S. Highway 40, just west of 27th Street in Lawrence, around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say Shay's truck left the road for unknown reasons, entered a ditch and continued westward.

When the vehicle's wheels were caught in a field, the vehicle rolled three to four times. KHP says Shay was ejected from the truck, which landed on its wheels.

Shay was taken to Stormont-Vail for treatment. Her condition is not known, but authorities did say she suffered serious injuries.
