A man was taken to the hospital after his motorcycle was rear-ended in Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.

The crash was reported at 5:11 p.m. Wednesday at Fifth Avenue and Ohio Street.

The motorcyclist, a 38-year-old Leavenworth man, was stopped in traffic behind a Nissan Versa.

The Nissan’s driver, a 40-year-old Leavenworth man, was waiting to make a left turn, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

A 20-year-old Lansing man who was driving north on Fifth Avenue in a Jeep Grand Cherokee rear-ended the motorcycle. Nicodemus said the Nissan also was struck by either the Jeep or the Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was transported to the University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kansas, to be treated for what Nicodemus described as serious injuries.

The other drivers were not injured.

“It’s still under investigation,” Nicodemus said of the wreck.
