Kansas City, MO - One Hospitalized After Chain-Reaction Accident on I-29 at North Oak Trafficway
Kansas City, MO (June 17, 2021) - A chain-reaction accident involving four vehicles on Interstate 29 left one person with injuries on Thursday, June 17th in Clay County.
Reports show that the pile-up occurred at about 5:15 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the interstate at the North Oak Trafficway intersection when a Dodge Caravan that was stopped at a red light was rear-ended by a 2014 Dodge Ram pick-up truck. The force of the impact pushed the Caravan into the back of a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze which, in turn, was pushed into the rear end of a 2000 GMC 1500.
With the exception of the GMC, all vehicles involved in the incident were totaled.
The driver of the Dodge Caravan, a 35-year-old female from Platte City, sustained moderate injuries during the crash. She was taken by ambulance to North Kansas City Hospital.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
