A driver suffered a minor burn from an airbag deployment. But no one was taken to the hospital following a collision in downtown Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.

The crash was reported at 6:17 p.m. Wednesday at Fifth and Shawnee streets.

A 33-year-old Lansing man was driving north on Fifth Street in a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu when he allegedly ran a red light, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The driver later told police the sun was in his eyes.

The car collided with a 2004 Ford F-150 pickup truck that was traveling west on Shawnee Street. The truck came into contact with the side of a building as it came to rest.

A traffic light also was damaged in the crash.

Nicodemus said the driver of the Malibu was cited by police for allegedly having no proof of insurance, an illegal registration and failing to obey a traffic signal.

The other driver, a 19-year-old rural Leavenworth man, had a burn on his hand from the airbag deployment.
