Copper Crooks Blamed For Causing Fatal Crash On Kansas City Highway Of Death

The victim had troubles but she was also days away from attending her daughter's wedding. Meanwhile, efforts to try and regulate the scrap trade are mostly for show given that thieves usually sell the stuff on the black market or on the outskirts of town. Here's a round-up of a recent tragedy that could've been prevented by better highway design, better choices and more coverage on the topic of the most dangerous stretch of road in KCMO.

Copper crooks may be to blame after woman in wheelchair killed in crash

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- A Kansas City woman has died after she was hit by a truck while crossing a highway in a wheelchair early Tuesday morning. It happened at 12:06 a.m. on U.S. Highway 71 at Gregory Boulevard. The southbound lanes of US 71 were closed for over two hours.

I am having trouble understanding the problem here. Was the wheelchair in a crosswalk or was the victim jaywalking? Wouldn't that be a consideration in determining blame?

@9:28, I don't know why @9:11 needs to know, but the questions are still valid.

This article smells of the City trying to absolve itself and KCP&L from any responsibility for unrepaired streetlights.

Also, it is a valid question to ask if the lady was jaywalking or in a crosswalk, in order to make a judgement as to any responsibility on the part of the driver.

These questions should have been answered in the article, but were not.

Oh, and how is it your business why anyone asks a question?
Are you some sort of referee, or do you just like to spew out anonymous hatred onto strangers?

@9:28 yes I agree with 9:59 your style of hate has to stop in here. Are you the lowlife who was attacking Super Dave yesterday? Go away just to bad Toney won't run you people off who attack others while adding nothing worthwhile to the conversation.

This is terribly reported. This death is squarely and accurately blamed on Emanuel Cleaver. He was the fucker that insisted that stoplights here would lead to economic development. What a joke. Go to cross streets farther north. They have overpasses. That is exactly what should be at this stoplight and other lights on 71 hwy. Cleaver killed this woman.

@9:28 is GO4KC.

More failed infrastructure taking the blame.

The accident occurred because our african american friends continually steal the copper wiring in the lights, rendering the area pitch-black and pedestrians invisible. Period. Yea for black thieves who don't give a s*it.
