GARDNER — A four-vehicle crash in suburban Kansas City, Kansas, has left a child dead and three others injured, authorities there said.
The crash happened around 8 a.m. Monday at a rural intersection west of Gardner, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said.
Investigators said 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.
One child in the SUV was killed, authorities said. The woman and the 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.
