LONE JACK, MO – One 9-year-old child was killed and two other young children injured following a T-bone collision in Lone Jack early Sunday morning.
According to KCTV, the accident occurred near the intersection of Highway 50 and Lover’s Lane shortly after midnight.
Investigators believe the driver of a 2010 Dodge failed to yield to an oncoming 2004 Ford and was struck on the driver’s side. The impact caused a 9-year-old boy to be ejected from the Dodge.
The child who was thrown from the Dodge died at the scene of the crash. The other occupants, a 12-year-old and a 31-year-old man, sustained moderate, non-life-threatening injuries in the collision.
