Woman Dies in a Northland KC-MO Crash

This wasn't just any crash- for it took nearly an hour and a half to extricate the a person from the wreckage- who died.

It was in spite of a valiant effort by KC-MO Fire and paramedic crews- who worked on the "25-year-old female" trapped in a mangled car since the wreck was first reported at 1:07 a.m.- on southbound I-29 under one of the bridges of the I-635 interchange on the northern border of Riverside.

Extrication tools and airbags were used- while medics wiggled around the wreckage trying to keep the trapped woman alive.

That effort failed when- after the 2:32 a.m. extrication of the female was completed- she was declared dead-at-the-scene by the paramedic.

A second male patient- reportedly the driver of the car- refused medical transport.

The wreck is being investigated while southbound I-29 at I-635 remained closed for several hours Saturday morning.
Please watch KSHB-41 NBC Action News at 8 a.m.- 5 and 10 p.m. for details on this incident...
