Three people were injured, two seriously, in a fiery car crash Tuesday afternoon near a shopping center in Kansas City’s Northland, according to police.
Officers were dispatched to the two-car wreck around 3:40 p.m. at Northeast 82nd Terrace and North Church Road. It happened after the driver of a Ford sedan pulled away from a stop sign onto Church Road.
A Chrysler headed southbound struck the Ford on its side. Then, police said, the Chrysler left the roadway, struck a light pole, flipped over and caught fire.
The driver of the Ford and a passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, police said.
Four people crawled out of the Chrysler. Only its driver, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, remained on scene, according to police.
Kansas City police continued to investigate the crash Tuesday night. Further details were not immediately disclosed.
