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.
