Kansas City, MO – Two Injured in Highway 70 Crash near I-435

Kansas City, MO (August 27, 2023) – Two victims were left injured following a crash in Jackson County on Sunday morning, August 27.

Just before 1:30 a.m., a 2012 Ford Fusion was traveling on the west side of Highway 70 when the driver decided to change lanes near 435. After entering the second lane, the vehicle collided with a 2008 Acura TL. The Acura was totaled as a result of the crash.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene and secured the roadway.

Two people were injured in the crash. A 17-year-old female and 19-year-old Mallory Rodriguez, both of Kansas City, Kansas, were transported to Centerpoint Hospital for emergency care.

At this time, the crash is being investigated.

We hope Mallory Rodriguez and the second victim injured in this crash recover quickly.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Every week, more than 1,050 persons in Missouri suffer injuries as a result of car accidents. We frequently see the serious effects that victims of car and truck accidents must endure. Although we can take preventative measures to protect those using the roads, there is no guarantee that other drivers will have our safety in mind.

Dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be incredibly difficult. Trying to overcome painful physical and emotional injuries while being unable to work and earn an income can be incredibly difficult. Not only do victims struggle to move forward and pay their cost of living, but they are burdened by tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs and vehicle repair expenses. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents that take place across our state are preventable.

In fact, more than 94% of all collisions are caused by drivers who are drunk, under the influence of drugs, distracted, or engaging in other negligent actions while operating their vehicles.
