A driver was killed Tuesday afternoon as a result of a collision at 20th Street and Eisenhower Road, a police spokesman said.

The crash was reported at 4:01 p.m. Tuesday.

H. Lee Forge, 84, Kansas City, Kansas, had been driving south on 20th Street in a 2017 Toyota Corolla.

He stopped at the Eisenhower Road intersection. But he apparently failed to yield the right of way as he proceeded into the intersection, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The Toyota Corolla collided with a 2006 Chevrolet C3500 pickup that was traveling west on Eisenhower Road.

Firefighters extricated Forge from his vehicle following the collision. He was pronounced dead a short time later, Nicodemus said.

The other driver, a 27-year-old rural Leavenworth man, suffered an arm injury.

Nicodemus said authorities have a lot of work to do before they complete their investigation. He said investigators do not suspect that intoxication was a factor, but standard testing should determine whether this was a factor.
