Categorized as Auto Accidents

Jackson Co, MO (February 18, 2021) – A collision between two vehicles in the eastbound lanes of I-470 caused injuries to one person on Wednesday, February 17th.

Reports show that at about 8:55 p.m., a 2018 Hyundai Elantra crashed into the back end of a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. The force of the impact pushed the Buick off the roadway and sent it crashing into a concrete barrier.

The driver of the Buick, a 31-year-old female from Kansas City, was transported by Lee Summit Fire to Kansas City VA Medical Center.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
