Teen left fighting for his life after early morning crash


KANSAS CITY – One teenager is fighting for his life after a car crashed into a tree early this morning.

According to reports, investigators were dispatched at 6:40 a.m. to the area of 42nd and Prospect Avenue in response to a one-vehicle crash.

Reports say two teens were on their way to Lincoln Prep High School when the crash occurred.

According to investigators, the driver of a silver Honda Civic was traveling north on Prospect when they lost control and hit a tree.

The driver was wearing a seatbelt and received non-life threatening injuries.

The passenger, however, was not wearing his seatbelt and has received life-threatening injuries.

Investigators are working to determine what led to the accident and do not believe any other vehicles were involved.

Kansas City Public Schools recently released this statement:

“Two Kansas City Public Schools students were involved in a serious automobile accident this morning. They are enrolled as juniors at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy. KCPS will not be releasing the students’ names or any other details at this time in order to preserve their confidentiality. Superintendent Mark Bedell, Lincoln Prep Principal Kristian Foster and their teams are offering their profound concern and support for the students and their loved-ones. KCPS is providing well trained experts to help everyone who is impacted with their social and emotional needs.”

We will continue to update the story as information is released.
