Two 23-year-old Kansas City men were killed in a fatal multi-vehicle wreck that also injured a third person Saturday in Platte County.
The wreck occurred on Missouri 45 Highway near the intersection of Westside Drive, which is just north of the Platte County town of Iatan, Mo.
Police said a 2004 silver Mercury Grand Marquis the men were in was traveling northbound in the southbound lane of the highway attempting to pass other cars when it collided head-on with a gold 2007 Toyota Rav 4.
Never miss a local story.
Both men died at the scene, police said.
The driver of the Rav 4 — an 18-year-old woman from Atchison, Kan. — was flown to the hospital with injuries that appeared to be non-life threatening.
A third vehicle was struck, but no one in that car was hurt.
Police believe alcohol may have played a role in the crash.
