Categorized as Auto Accidents

Clay Co, MO (January 03, 2021) – A two-car crash along I-435 during which one person was injured was responded to by the Missouri State Highway Patrol on Sunday, January 3rd.

Incident reports show that, at about 2:05 p.m., a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado was driving behind a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. As the Pathfinder slowed in preparation for a stop, the Silverado crashed into the back of the SUV.

The driver of the Pathfinder, a 53-year-old female from Kansas City, sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the impact. She was transported by the Kansas City Fire Department to Truman Medical Center.

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