A woman suffered broken bones during a car accident Monday at Fourth and Limit streets, a police spokesman said.

The accident was reported at 12:54 p.m. Monday. Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department, said a 76-year-old Leavenworth woman had been driving a 1989 Toyota Tercel north on Fourth Street. The woman allegedly turned left in front of a southbound 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The vehicles collided.

The driver of the Tercel suffered a broken wrist and broken leg. She had not been wearing a seat belt, according to Nicodemus.

The woman was transported to the University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kan.

She was cited for allegedly not wearing a seatbelt and failing to yield when turning left, according to Nicodemus.

The other vehicle's driver, an 82-year-old Kansas City, Kan., woman, was not injured.

"Both cars were towed away," Nicodemus said.
