  • A vehicle struck a church after it had collided with another vehicle Tuesday in Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.
    One person was taken to the hospital following the accident. Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department, said he did not know the extent of the damage to the Pentecostal Church of the Apostolic Faith, 1701 Fifth Ave.
    Acting Fire Chief Mark Nietzke said the vehicle had hit concrete steps in the front of the church.
    The accident was reported at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Fifth and Pennsylvania avenues.
    Nicodemus said a 51-year-old man was driving east on Pennsylvania Avenue when he allegedly failed to stop for a stop sign at Fifth Avenue. His vehicle collided with a southbound Chevrolet Suburban. After the collision, the Dodge Durango struck the church.
    The 51-year-old man was injured in the accident.
    “He was transported to a local hospital,” Nicodemus said.
    The deputy chief said tests are being performed in an attempt to determine if drugs or alcohol had been a factor.
    The 46-year-old woman who was driving the Chevrolet Suburban was said to be OK.
