A 42-year-old Kansas City man was killed Sunday when he was struck by a vehicle traveling the wrong direction down a one-way street.
The accident happened just after 4 p.m. at 34th Street and Prospect Avenue. Four other people, including the driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrian, were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said a 17-year-old was traveling westbound in a Chevrolet Impala on 34th Street when she failed to stop at the intersection at Prospect Avenue. The Impala was struck by a southbound Hyundai, said Sgt. Deb Randol, with the accident investigation unit.
The impact of the crash caused the Impala to rotate and collide into the victim, who was standing on the west side of the intersection. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
