Pedestrian Struck- Seriously-Injured in Leavenworth KS Early Saturday

Just after 1 a.m. Saturday morning- a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle and seriously hurt near 20th Street and Cherokee in western Leavenworth.

The unknown gender or age patient was flown by medical helicopter to a Kansas City hospital.

There isn't any word yet from LPD if the driver of the vehicle that struck that person remained at the scene or was charged with any infraction regarding this incident.

UPDATE:  Leavenworth Police says a married couple was struck by a car  while walking on Cherokee east of 20th Street.

The woman- "59-years-of-age" was killed- and her "62-year-old" husband was the one transported by helicopter in critical condition.

Police say the driver of the car that struck them then crashed into a pole and fled- but he was apprehended later at his residence after police ran the vehicle's license plate.
