Semi driver avoids cyclist but hospitalized after hitting tree

A Waverly semi driver avoided a cyclist near Lawrence on Saturday, but the maneuver led to him being injured and hospitalized.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 36-year-old Gabriel Bukovatz was traveling on U.S. Highway 40 about eight miles west of Lawrence when he crashed. Bukovatz took evasive action to miss a cyclist, but his semi left the highway, overturned and hit a tree.

Bukovatz was taken to Lawrence Memorial for treatment. The hospital does not give patient conditions to the media.
