A teen was taken the hospital after his bicycle collided with a pickup Monday in Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.

The crash was reported at about 2:15 p.m. at Spruce and 20th streets.

A 52-year-old Leavenworth man was driving south on 20th Street in a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. He made a left turn to travel east on Spruce Street.

A 15-year-old boy on a bicycle struck the side of the truck, according to Leavenworth police Lt. Kevin Crim.

The boy was transported by Leavenworth County EMS to Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, Missouri.

Crim said the boy apparently had been traveling north on the bicycle on a sidewalk or grassy area before the accident. A witness indicated the boy had entered the street and was crossing it at an angle at the time of the collision.
