Atchison bicyclist injured in collision with SUV

(KAIR)--An 18-year-old Atchison man required helicopter transport for hospital treatment after his bicycle collided with an SUV around 3:45 Monday afternoon at Atchison’s 11th and Kansas Avenue.
According to a report from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, 18-year-old Chandler Moorshead “was riding a bicycle south on 11th Street and was unable to stop at the stop sign at Kansas Avenue and struck an eastbound SUV.”

Atchison Police, the Atchison Fire Department and Atchison County EMS, all responded to the intersection, with Moorshead tranported from that location. First taken to Amberwell Atchison, he was later airlifted to a Kansas City hospital for treatment of his injuries. Wilson said Moorshead suffered head injuries, a broken bone in the shoulder, and scrapes and bruises on his body.

The driver of the SUV, Atchison resident Elizabeth Collins, was not hurt.

According to Wilson, an inspection of the bicycle by officers, following the crash, revealed that it had no brakes.
