Accident on Thompson & Askew Avenues Kills One

May 22, 2015

A tragic accident in northeast Kansas City killed one and injured two individuals in an auto collision early on May 21, 2015. Authorities have not released the identification of the individuals involved in the accident.

Police reported that the accident was dangerous because none of the passengers in the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident. Lack of seatbelt use is a common cause of serious car accident injuries.

Safety features like seat belts are essential to keeping motorists safe during accidents. Our experienced auto accident lawyers have witnessed firsthand the tragedies associated with accidents.

Accident on Thompson & Askew Avenues

The accident occurred on Thompson and Askew avenues in the wee hours of the morning. Around 3 a.m., law enforcement officials were called to the scene.

Investigators report that a white BMW first collided with a tree and then a parked car. Preliminary investigations reveal that speeding may have been a contributing factor in the accident.

The car turned out to be stolen. Authorities stated that the car was first reported stolen in Omaha. The vehicle had three occupants. One individual died, while two others were rushed to area hospitals for treatment.

Of the two individuals who were sent to the hospital, one was listed in critical condition while the other suffered only two minor injuries.
