Police are investigating after a motorcyclist was killed Sunday in a three-vehicle accident.

Officers were called about 11:40 a.m. to the 6300 block of Leavenworth Road. The road was closed to traffic while authorities investigated the crash.

Kansas City, KS, police said a gray pickup was stopped at a red light, the motorcyclist was behind the truck.

A car came up at a high rate of speed and plowed into the motorcyclist, pinning the motorcyclist between the two vehicles. Investigators said the motorcyclist was a man in his 50s.

This is the second fatality accident at the same intersection in the last month.

Investigators say Tyrone Murphy Jr., 27, was trying to speed away from police when he slammed into a van with a mom and three children inside. The other children in the van were ages 9 and 7. Click here to read more.
