A 23-year-old Leavenworth man was involved in a three-car accident on U.S. Highway 24-40 Saturday afternoon about six miles southwest of Tonganoxie.

Kyle Lee Grape was driving west on the highway when his vehicle went left of center and struck another car head-on, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.

He was injured in the crash, but his injuries were not initially believed to be serious.

A 12-year-old boy traveling in Grape’s vehicle wasn’t hurt, according to the report.

The driver of the second car, Larry L. Lane of Manhattan, was transported to a Kansas City-area hospital, but information on his condition wasn’t available Saturday evening.

After the initial crash, a pickup truck struck Grape’s vehicle, but the driver wasn’t injured, according to the highway patrol report.

All the victims of the crash were wearing seat belts, according to the report.
