KANSAS CITY, MO – Police in Kansas City said two vehicles were involved in a deadly collision Sunday evening, the Kansas City Star reports.
According to investigators, the driver of a Chevrolet Equinox SUV was going west on 63rd Street at about 9:15 p.m. and failed to stop at the intersection with Ward Parkway. The Equinox was then hit by a Toyota Camry going south on Ward Parkway.
