GARDNER, Kan. — Authorities in suburban Kansas City, Kansas, say a four-vehicle crash has left a child dead and three others injured.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened Monday morning at a rural intersection west of Gardner. Investigators say a roofing truck crashed into a sport utility vehicle driven by a woman and carrying her three children. The impact of the crash sent the SUV into another truck, which then hit a van. Authorities say one child in the SUV was killed. The woman and other two children were taken to a hospital with injuries, but are expected to survive. Officials have not released the names of the child killed or those injured.
No one in the other vehicles was seriously injured.
