An accident that occurred late Monday morning at Kansas Highway 7 and Kansas Avenue caused minor injuries for the drivers of two vehicles and one passenger.

Lt. Rick Schubert, Bonner Springs Police Department spokesperson, said the accident occurred about 11 a.m. when a 1998 Mazda truck, eastbound on Kansas Avenue, was attempting to turn northbound on K-7 and struck a westbound 2006 Suzuki.

Schubert said the truck was driven by 16-year-old from Kansas City, Kan. A Tonganoxie woman and a 15-year-old passenger were in the Suzuki. All received minor injuries, but Schubert did not know if any were transported to the hospital.

Additional officers were called in to redirect some highway traffic to Commercial Drive, and the accident clean-up slowed traffic in all directions at the intersection.
