Kansas City, MO (April 05, 2021) – A two-vehicle rollover accident that took place on Sunday, April 4th ejected a passenger from the vehicle and put four people in the hospital.
At about 8:30 p.m., police and paramedics reported to the area of Woodland Avenue and Cookingham Drive. Police stated that a Honda Acura was heading southbound on Woodland Avenue when it failed to yield to oncoming traffic at a flashing red light.
As a result, a westbound Chevrolet Cruze struck the Acura’s side, causing it to overturn and throwing a backseat passenger from the vehicle.
Both cars landed in a deep trench at the southwest corner of the intersection.
The driver of the Cruze was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
The driver and both passengers in the Acura were transported with non-critical injuries.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
