A 26-year-old Atchison woman was sent to an area medical center in Leavenworth for what a Kansas Highway Patrol report described as a serious injury after a two-vehicle accident in Leavenworth.

Chelsea R. Thummel of Atchison was the driver of a 2011 Dodge Journey northbound along Fourth Street when she was struck by a 2016 Honda Pilot driven by 77-year-old Michael D. Meyer of Leavenworth, the patrol reported. Meyer was eastbound along Linn Street, failed to yield at the stop sign and crossed over Fourth Street. Thummel’s vehicle struck Meyer’s along the passenger side. Meyer’s vehicle then rolled over onto the driver’s side and came back to an upright position upon stopping.

The accident occurred about 4:15 p.m. on July 13 at Fourth and Linn streets, or near milepost U.S. 73 northbound, according to the KHP crash narrative.

A passenger in Thummel’s vehicle, Jadon Orr, 25, Atchison, complained of pain at the accident scene but was not transported, KHP reported.

Meyer also complained of pain at the accident scene but was not transported for medical care.

Thummel and Meyer were wearing their seat belts at the time of the impact, but Orr was not, according to the patrol report. Meyer’s vehicle was disabled and removed from the crash site.
