A Kansas City woman was killed when a pickup truck neglected a traffic signal and crashed into a car Monday afternoon.
According to the Kansas City Police Department, a red Dodge Dakota pickup truck ran a stop light at 12th Street and Hardesty. The truck crashed into a white Lincoln.
The two vehicles then crashed into another pickup truck that had stopped for the traffic light.
Gertrude Price, 65, was thrown from the Lincoln and killed. A passenger in the back seat of the Lincoln was transported to a hospital in critical condition. The passenger in the front seat of the Lincoln suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the second pickup truck was also injured.
The driver of the Dodge Dakota attempted to flee after the crash, but was stopped by a witness. The driver was then arrested.
Seeing a copy of the Missouri accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Missouri Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Missouri accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
