Olathe Police are investigating following a fatal accident this morning.

Police say the accident was reported around 7:10 Friday morning near the intersection of 159th Street and Lone Elm Road, just south of Interstate 35.

The incident involved a semi-dump truck and a Lincoln Town Car. The semi T-boned the Town Car on the passenger's side of the vehicle.

Sources familiar with the accident confirm to Operation 100 News that the driver of the vehicle was an 81-year-old man. The driver's injures are said to be serious but non life-threatening. Firefighters had to extricate the driver from the Town Car. It is not believed that he was wearing a seat belt.

Police say the passenger in the Town Car was an 83-year-old, female. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the tractor-trailer sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene after declining further treatment.

Investigators believe the Town Car was traveling northbound on Lone Elm Road and the semi-dump truck was traveling westbound on 159th Street.

Police have closed the westbound lanes of 159th Street and the northbound lanes of Lone Elm Road.
