Share the Road: Watch for motorcycles
A motorcyclist has life-threatening injuries after crashing on Interstate 435 in Kansas City, police said Friday.
It happened around 2:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the interstate near Truman Road.
Police said the crash involved a motorcycle and a car.
Preliminary investigation showed a person driving a Suzuki motorcycle was headed south on the interstate when he lost control and drove off the left side of the roadway, police said. The motorcycle then struck a cable barrier in the median, was redirected back into traffic and was hit by a southbound Chevrolet car.
The motorcyclist, a 28-year-old Kansas City man, was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
According to Kansas City Scout, the two left lanes on the interstate were closed as the crash remained under investigation Friday afternoon.
