Strother, MO - Serious Injury Crash on I-470
Strother, MO (January 02, 2021) - On Friday, January 1st, an accident that caused injuries to two people occurred in the southbound lanes of Interstate 470 in Jackson County, near Strother.
Reports show that, at about 7:25 p.m., a 2002 Chevrolet 2500 pick-up truck traveling southbound along the interstate lost control on an ice-covered portion of the roadway. The truck then traveled off the lefthand side of the roadway and flipped over, its roof striking a guardrail and the driver ejecting from the vehicle.
The driver, a 25-year-old male from Lees Summit, sustained serious injuries during the impact. The passenger, a 21-year-old male, also from Lees Summit, suffered injuries classified as non-life-threatening.
Both men were transported by the Lees Summit Fire Department to Centerpoint.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
