A 42-year-old Kansas City woman suffered critical injuries Sunday afternoon after she was thrown from a motorcycle in a wreck near Kauffman Stadium.
The woman had been riding on the back of her husband’s Harley Davidson eastbound on Stadium Drive when a Honda Accord leaving the stadium pulled out from a stop sign on Royal Way. When the motorcycle hit the car near the car’s front wheel, the woman flew forward off the motorcycle, police said. She was rushed into surgery with life-threatening injuries.
Her husband suffered non-life threatening injuries in the 4:15 p.m. wreck. The couple had friends who had attended the baseball game and police think the couple may have attended the game before leaving on the Harley. Both riders were wearing helmets.
