Another Fatality Crash in the Northland- A Homicide and Other Metro K.C. Sunday Morning News

Metro Kansas City emergency services- particularily KC-MO- were generally busy this Sunday morning in late August 2010.

For the second morning in a row there's been a fatality crash on Interstate or I-29 in the KC-MO Northland.

This happened just before 1:30 a.m. just north of Missouri or 'M' 152 highway and it involved at least 2 vehicles.

A car fire was reported and confirmed ("fully-involved" according to KC-MO Pumper 44) but it was at least initially reported to be NOT involved in the crash.

Wreckage and victims were found further north of the car fire.

Two cars' drivers were transported to hospitals- both in non life-threatening condition.

One was a male- the other a "22-year-old female" according to a KC-MO Fire paramedic.  She was also possibly intoxicated.

There's no identity yet on the deceased person.

This time the northbound lanes were closed while police and Missouri Highway Patrol investigated the crash.

The other death involves the latest KC-MO homicide...

A male in his 20's who had been shot in his upper chest pulled into the police gas/service station at 1245 Prospect around 3 a.m..
