Kansas City police on Wednesday identified a motorcyclist killed in a wreck Tuesday morning as Jason M. Hayes, 34, of Blue Springs.
Hayes was northbound on Noland Road about 11:10 a.m. when traffic in front of him stopped so a vehicle could turn left onto Rickey Road. Hayes veered left to try to avoid hitting the back of a Ford F-150 that stopped in front of him, but Hayes clipped the truck and was thrown into the path of an oncoming Ford Focus.
Hayes died at the scene. His death marked the 41st traffic fatality this year in Kansas City, compared to 46 at the same date last year.
