A police pursuit from a Missouri law enforcement agency into Wyandotte County ended in an injury at 10:28 a.m. this morning to a driver not involved in the chase and an injury to a teen driver pursued by police.
Law enforcement officers from Missouri were chasing a 17-year-old driver when the accident happened near K-5 and 18th Street. I-635 and K-5 exits in Kansas City, Kansas, were closed after the accident.
According to a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper’s report, a 42-year-old Shawnee, Kansas, woman driving a Chrysler Challenger, who was not involved in the chase, had a serious injury in the accident and was taken to a Kansas City, Kansas, hospital.
The woman in the Chrysler was hit by a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a teen that police were pursuing, the report stated.
The Malibu was exiting from K-5 to 18th Street and ran a red light, causing the Malibu to hit the Chrysler, according to the trooper’s report.
The driver of the Malibu, a 17-year-old Kansas City, Missouri, girl, was taken to a Kansas City, Kansas, hospital with a suspected serious injury, the trooper’s report stated. She was not wearing a seat belt, the report stated.
An 18-year-old Kansas City, Missouri, male was a passenger in the Malibu, the report stated. He also was not wearing a seat belt and had no apparent injury, the trooper’s report stated. The Malibu did not have insurance, according to the trooper’s report.
The Kansas City T-Bones and the Sioux City Explorers were rained out owing to unplayable field conditions Tuesday night at T-Bones Stadium in Kansas City, Kansas.
The team, led by the grounds crew, made every effort to get the field ready to play the game, but the amount of rain that has fallen in metro Kansas City was just too much to allow the teams to take the field, according to a spokesman.
The two teams will play two seven-inning games Wednesday with game one beginning at 11:05 a.m. The T-Bones are expected to start left-handed pitcher Henry Owens while Sioux City will start right-handed pitcher Jonathan McKinney. In game two, the T-Bones will start right-handed pitcher Jon Perrin while the Explorers will counter with right-handed pitcher Max Duval.
