Kansas City, MO (July 3, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the Jackson County area left one person injured. At around 320 p.m., on June 30, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a crash that occurred on US Highway 71.
Reports provided by authorities indicate that a 2001 Dodge charger was traveling on the northbound side of US Highway 71. As the vehicle approached the intersection of East 25th Street, it stopped for debris that was in the roadway. A 2007 Chevrolet Malibu passing through the area attempted to avoid striking the Charger. However, the Chevrolet struck the rear of the Charger and then collided with a 2008 Kenworth.
One person involved in the accident suffered injuries. EMS treated 41-year-old Kenneth Gilbert at the scene of the crash. Gilbert was then transported to Truman Medical Center for further treatment and evaluation.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Kenneth Gilbert at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
