Lees Summit, MO (June 12, 2021) – A individual was killed on Tuesday, June 8th during a two-vehicle collision in Cass County.
Police stated that the accident took place at about 6:10 p.m. in the area of Bridlewood Drive and Southwest Third Street. Upon their arrival, crews discovered two vehicles, a Chevy Tahoe and a Dodge pick-up truck, in the intersection.

Paramedics transported the driver of the Tahoe to an area hospital in serious condition.
