OLATHE, Kan. — A trash truck and a motorcycle crashed Thursday morning at 114th and Sumac in Olathe and serious injuries are reported.

Paramedic dispatchers told FOX 4  the motorcycle driver suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Accident investigators say it appears the trash truck crew was picking up trash on Sumac, heading northbound, when the driver made a left hand turn and hit the motorcyclist.

They did not say if any tickets were issued or who was at fault. Because the crash involves a city vehicle, Overland Park’s police traffic unit will handle the investigation.
