One person was critically injured Friday when his pickup truck was hit by a car fleeing another wreck, according to Kansas City police.
Police said a Ford Escape hit a Suzuki at 35th and South Benton streets about 12:30 p.m. The driver of the Ford didn’t stop, and the Suzuki driver began following it south on South Benton.
The Ford, traveling at a high rate of speed, turned onto 38th Street and smashed into the rear of a pickup truck waiting at a stop sign, police said. The truck overturned and went into Prospect Avenue, which police closed for several hours while they investigated.
The pickup truck driver was taken to a hospital in critical condition. The driver of the Ford and the driver and a passenger in the Suzuki suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
