CSW BREAKING: Fatality Motorcycle Crash on U.S. 50 in Lee's Summit MO

Police and a fire department EMS unit are reporting a fatality at the scene of "a motorcycle versus car" crash early Sunday morning. 

The call came into Lee's Summit emergency services at 1:24 a.m. for the location reported as "eastbound U.S. 50 at M-291- east junction" near the Missouri Highway Patrol (MOHP) Troop A headquarters.

A Lee's Summit police officer who came upon the scene reported a "male motorcyclist (face) down in the roadway" and "possibly" deceased.

That person's terminal condition was confirmed by EMS on-scene at 1:40 a.m..

Two other persons suffered minor injuries- but refused EMS transport to a hospital.

The MOHP "crash team from Warrensburg" was coming to investigate the crash- and eastbound U.S. 50 was and would remain closed at the M-291 west junction (to Harrisonville).

The MOHP issued it's crash report later Sunday- saying that the operator of the motorcycle- "20-year-old Nicholas A McFerren of Blue Springs-" was driving west in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 50 when he struck a 2001 Toyota driven by 17-year-old Ruben Salinas of Independence.

Salinas and another person in Salinas' car refused EMS treatment or transport of very minor injuries.
