OLATHE, KS (KCTV) -

Olathe police are investigating an accident that left one person in critical condition early Friday morning. 

The accident happened just off of West 151st Street on the grounds of the Olathe Medical Center. It happened shortly before 7 a.m. when a pickup slammed into a tree at one of the entrances to the hospital. 

The person had to be cut out of the truck. The victim was transported to Overland Park Regional Hospital because Olathe Medical Center does not have a trauma unit. Olathe Medical Center is located on West 151st Street, just west of Interstate 35. 

No lanes of West 151st Street were affected by the accident, however, that particular entrance to the hospital was closed.
