Two People Dead and One Critically Injured in an Accident with a Box Truck on Interstate 435 in Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City, Mo. – Two people died, and one suffered critical injuries when a white Hino box truck rear-ended a Ford Fusion. The incident happened Sunday morning on northbound Interstate 435 before Missouri 210 Highway.

According to police reports, the Ford Fusion slowed down or stopped for reasons yet to be determined, leading to a rear-end collision with the box truck.

Both the driver and rear passenger of the Ford were pronounced dead at the scene.

The front passenger of the Ford suffered critical injuries. The box truck driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on large trucks and fatal rear-end collisions

Large trucks need time to stop. For this reason, they should always keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of them. Unfortunately, truckers don’t always follow the rules, causing devastating consequences, like here, where people died and another was critically injured. Truckers should be held accountable When they fail to keep others around them safe.

This was a catastrophic accident that needs answers. The family needs to know the cause of the accident and the right to hold the wrongdoer accountable for the pain and suffering caused by this crash.

May all the facts come to light.
