Child killed in auto accident as car allegedly runs red light

Drivers in Kansas City know that an auto accident can happen at any time, but for most it is not a consistent worry. However, there are times when an accident will happen and the results can be severe with catastrophic injuries and even death. Car accidents can occur due to negligence, drinking and driving, ignoring traffic signals or simply because of unfortunate circumstances. In any event, the aftermath can be terrible for the injured persons and their families.

Truck accident with semi sends pickup driver to the hospital

Drivers in Kansas City must always be vigilant for large trucks on the road. Not only are these vehicles heavy and massive, but they are sometimes driven in an unsafe manner. This can lead to a truck accident. Aggressive driving is never a good idea, but when it is done by a trucker, it places the health and lives of others in jeopardy. While these trucks are an important part of the economy, provide goods and create jobs, they still present a danger if operated recklessly.

Two teenagers dead after collision in intersection

A community is in mourning after a fatal car accident involving five local high school students. The wreck occurred when a 17-year-old student drove into an intersection, hitting a northbound truck. The 17-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger both died at the scene, while another 14-year-old passenger is being treated for serious injuries. It appears that there was no stop sign at the intersection and the cars may not have yielded to each other as required. The driver of the truck was a 15-year-old-boy who suffered critical injuries. The boy's passenger, another 15-year-old, suffered serious injuries and remains hospitalized. Police are still investigating the crash but say speed likely played a factor in the accident.
