LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- Leavenworth police say a 26-year-old woman died when power lines fell on her after her car ran into a power pole.

Police Chief Pat Kitchens says after the Leavenworth woman's car hit a power pole Wednesday, she got out and was apparently trying to get two children out of the car when the power line touched her.

The woman was unresponsive when police arrived. She was pronounced dead at a hospital. A 3-year-old boy and an infant girl were not harmed.

Kitchens said an autopsy would be performed. The woman's name was not released.
