KC: 3 seriously hurt in Midtown Kansas City crash involving fleeing vehicle

KANSAS CITY, MO — One person was left in critical condition after fleeing a traffic stop late last Saturday, February 10, and causing a crash that also seriously hurt two other people, reports FOX 4.

The collision unfolded on Pennsylvania at Valentine Road, in the city’s Valentine neighborhood, some time after 11:47 p.m.

Kansas City Police Department officers said they were trying to conduct a traffic stop on a northbound Chevrolet Malibu for a traffic violation, but did not pursue the vehicle when the driver sped away.

Officials maintain that the driver continued northbound at a high rate of speed and ran a stop sign at Valentine Road. Moments later, the Chevrolet collided with a Chrysler 200, which was occupied by two people.

First responders transported both the driver and the passenger of the Chrysler to a local hospital for serious injuries. At the time of FOX 4’s report, both patients were listed in stable condition.

The driver of the Chevy was also rushed to the hospital, where they were listed in critical condition. Authorities noted that unlike the Chrysler occupants, the Chevy driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

At this time, the KCPD is working to determine whether either driver was impaired.
