Police identify motorist killed in accident on North Oak Trafficway

Police identified a motorist killed last Saturday near North Oak Trafficway and Northeast 102nd Terrace as Diana Gough, 64, of Platte City.

A speeding BMW hit a pickup truck driven by Gough in the side as she pulled out of a grocery store parking lot, police said. The pickup truck burst into flames, probably because its gas tank was hit.

Witnesses said the BMW, driven by a 16-year-old boy, had been traveling north at a high rate of speed. He suffered minor injuries.
