KC: Juvenile, 2 others injured as motorcycle collides with pickup truck in SW Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, MO – Three people, including a juvenile, were left injured Wednesday morning after a collision between a motorcycle and a pickup truck in southwest Kansas City, reports KCTV5.

Kansas City Police Department officials said the accident took place at the intersection of 72nd Street and Ward Parkway at about 7:30 a.m.

According to preliminary details, a white Ford Ranger was heading westbound on 72nd Street when it entered the intersection from a stop sign. Moments later, it was struck by a purple Yamaha V-Star motorcycle traveling northbound on Ward Parkway.

The operator of the bike, who was not wearing a helmet at the time and who was ejected, suffered critical injuries. He was rushed to a local hospital along with his passenger, a juvenile who was wearing a helmet but who also sustained serious injuries. Officials said the driver was listed in “serious but stable” condition, while the juvenile’s condition was described as “stable.”

The driver of the Ford received injuries considered non-life-threatening, but the KCTV report does not confirm whether that driver had to be hospitalized. A passenger in the Ford was not reported hurt.

An investigation by the Kansas City Police Department remains ongoing.
