"As BikeWalkKC has stated in the past, what deserves the brunt of the blame for these crashes is the culture that values car traffic efficiency over the safety of human lives."
This is a nice theory but it's completely wrong . . . The deadly altercation was clearly a RESULT OF A PERSONAL BEEF and didn't have anything to do with the ideas about transit.
The crash occurred in Blue Valley Park. Officers were called to the scene just before 3:30 pm. Investigators quickly determined that the driver had struck the victim intentionally following an argument. The crime scene was subsequently extended out of the park and onto parts of 23rd Street.
