Kansas City, MO (June 08, 2021) – Two Kansas City police officers sustained injuries when they collided at an intersection on Thursday, June 3rd.
According to a source inside the department, both officers were responding to calls when one patrol car heading southbound down Troost Avenue and another patrol car heading westbound along Armour Road crashed into one another.
One officer was slowly progressing through a red light when he was struck on the passenger side by the other vehicle.
The impact resulted in the first vehicle crashing into the southwest corner of the intersection.
KCPD stated that construction in the area was known to obstruct drivers’ view.
Both officers were taken by ambulances to local hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Right-of-Way Accidents in Kansas City
Missouri allows blame for right-of-way accidents to be established in several different ways, through things such as eyewitness accounts, discovery via opposing council, and the testimony of expert witnesses. Although the state affords you a very generous five-year statute of limitations in which to file your claim, it is imperative that you speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to prove your version of events and obtain full and fair financial compensation.
