Monday crash leaves no injuries, but one cited

(KAIR)--An early Monday morning crash between a semi and a car at the Omaha Junction, located on the west side of Atchison, on U.S. Highway 59, led to an on-scene rescue but no injuries.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, a car, driven by 59-year-old Atchison resident Jerry Jenkins, had been southbound on the U.S. Highway 73/U.S. 59 connecting link, at the junction, and was turning east onto 59 Highway. That's when a collission with a semi tractor-trailer, driven by 70-year-old St. Joseph, Missouri resident, Ricky Willis, westbound on 59, occurred.

According to Wilson, a door on the car had to be removed by Atchison Fire in order to free Jenkins from the wreckage.

Atchison County EMS was on the scene and examined both drivers, but neither required hospital transport.

Wilson, in the release, says Jenkins was cited for failure to yield.

The wreck happened shortly before 7:00 Monday morning.
