Drivers Going 100mph Before Deadly KCMO Crash

Friday, Jun. 11th 2021

Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred Wednesday morning at East Red Bridge Road and Blue Ridge Boulevard. 

KCPD reports that street-racing may have been the cause of the accident. A witness reported he saw the drivers while on his way home, and at the time he saw them they were going about 100mph. The witness reports the cars, one a thunderbird and the other a sedan, seemed to be chasing each other. Police reports the two cars sped through the intersection, running a red light. At the same time a Lexus ran the same light from a different direction.

The driver of the Lexus was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the thunderbird was taken to the hospital, critically injured. The other apparent racer sped away. Police have not identified the driver of the Lexus or provided an update on the injured thunderbird driver. 

Councilman Eric Bunch backed Vision Zero in Kansas City. He has a goal to help stop all traffic fatalities by 2030. He also supported an ordinance passed last month for higher penalties for street racers.

The new ordinance allows KCPD to ticket first time offenders for $100, and they could face 30 days in jail. The ordinance will also allow police to impound the vehicle used for street racing.

Northland Injury Law is proud of the relationships they’ve built with the clients they have served in the Northland and surrounding areas.  Their many great results for seriously injured people have helped their clients recover the significant economic losses that attend such serious injuries.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
