Hit and Run Driver Causes Rollover Crash
Two Northeast Missouri residents escape serious injury after their vehicle overturns near Kansas City.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports the crash occurred in Clay County at 3 a.m. Saturday.
Troopers say the crash was caused by an unknown vehicle that veered off I-35 into the median. It then came back onto the road and struck a vehicle driven by 26 year-old Kelsey Verdier of Palmyra. The collision caused the Verdier vehicle to overturn onto the median. The driver of the mystery vehicle initially stopped but then left the scene.
A passenger in Verdier’s vehicle, 32-year-old Michael Bell of Hannibal, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Liberty Hospital.
Verdier escaped injury. Both Verdier and Bell were buckled up according to the crash report.
