Kansas man charged with first-degree murder after I-70 crash that killed Illinois teen

BONNER SPRINGS — A fleeing driver has been charged with causing a crash in the Kansas City area that killed a suburban Chicago man.

KCTV reports that 29-year-old Anthony Dorsey was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement.

The pursuit started Monday after a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper attempted to stop a car with a registration issue near a Kansas City, Kansas, shopping area. The patrol says the man fled westbound on Interstate 70 before turning around near Bonner Springs and driving into oncoming traffic.

That’s when 19-year-old Nathan Pena, of Brookfield, Ill., was killed in a head-on crash while headed to Colorado to see friends. Dorsey, who was wanted on an armed robbery charge, had minor injuries and was taken into custody at the scene.
