TONGANOXIE, Kansas (AP) – Authorities say two people have died in a three-vehicle accident in northeast Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the wreck occurred Monday evening in rural Leavenworth County when a westbound driver sideswiped a trailer being hauled by an eastbound pickup before veering into oncoming traffic. His vehicle hit another car head-on, killing both drivers.

The patrol identified the driver of the westbound car as 46-year-old Bart H. Kissinger of Oskaloosa. The second driver was 39-year-old Brandon L. McKinsey of Tonganoxie. No one else was in either vehicle.

Two people in the truck with the trailer were not injured. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
