Dozens of crashes reported on Kansas City road where child was killed
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Records show there have been dozens of wrecks on a northern Kansas City road where a 4-year-old was killed.
Data from the Missouri State Highway Patrol shows there had been at least 43 crashes since 2009 within the roughly one-fifth of a mile stretch of Northeast Parvin Road where the girl was killed Monday. The Kansas City Star reports that she died when the sport utility in which she was riding went off the road, struck several trees and overturned. Records show a longer stretch of the road has seen at least 173 accidents in the last decade.
Public records show that Kansas City's Public Infrastructure Advisory Committee has been petitioned at least four times since 2014 for funds to improve the road. Each was rejected.
