A driver was taken to the hospital following a rear-end collision on the Kansas Turnpike in southern Leavenworth County, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.


The crash was reported at 11:25 p.m. Monday in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70.


A 2017 Volvo truck driven by a 51-year-old Junction City man reportedly rear-ended a 1999 Kenworth semitruck.


The semitruck driver, a 40-year-old Wiley, Colorado, man, was taken to Providence Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas, to be treated for what was believed to be a serious injury, according to a report posted on a Kansas Highway Patrol website.


The other driver had what was believed to a minor injury. But the KHP report does not indicate he was taken to the hospital.
