Kansas City, MO (May 30, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Clay County on Thursday evening ended in injuries. At around 4:15 p.m., on May 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 35.
Reports provided by MSHP Cpl JD Hall show that a group of vehicles was approaching a congested area of Interstate 35 on the southbound side of the roadway just north of Levee Road. As the vehicles began to slow down, a collision between a 2012 Ford F-150 pickup truck and a 2010 Ford Flex occurred on the roadway. The impact of the crash sent the Ford Flex into the rear of a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. Both Fords involved in the accident sustained moderate damage. All three vehicles were towed from the scene.
Two people involved in the accident were injured.
EMS transported 37-year-old Esmeralda Mondragon Albarran and 45-year-old Richard Powell to North Kansas City Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Esmeralda Mondragon Albarran and Richard Powell at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
