CRASH ALERT: DRIVER FLEES FROM REAR-END ACCIDENT AND CAUSES A SECOND COLLISION, KILLING HIMSELF AND INJURING TWO OTHERS
KANSAS CITY, MO - A driver died on Monday afternoon when he rear-ended one vehicle and fled the crash before hitting a second vehicle about a mile away. According to KSHB, the motorist was traveling northbound at East 87th Street and Blue Ridge Boulevard in a grey Mercedes when he rear-ended a Chrysler. When the driver of the Chrysler attempted to exchange information, the suspect fled the scene.
The Mercedes then drove south on James A Reed Road, where he ran the red light at Bannister Road. He then struck a westbound-traveling Ford Edge; the impact from that collision sent both vehicles into a Ford F-150. The Ford truck then crashed into a pole.
The driver of the Mercedes died at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Ford Edge suffered significant injuries, and the driver of the Ford F-150 also sustained serious injuries. Medics transported both drivers to a nearby hospital for treatment. The driver of the Chrysler was uninjured in the crash.
