Jackson County, MO (KSDK) - A one vehicle crash near Kansas City Thursday has left an area man hospitalized with serious injuries.
Missouri Highway Patrol troopers say around 1:00 p.m. yesterday, an eastbound pick-up truck on Interstate 70 in Jackson County, slid on a patch of ice.
That ice is what caused 40 year old Birnes Massey of St. Charles to lose control of the truck, forcing the vehicle off the pavement where it then rolled over into a ditch.
Investigators say Massey was taken to an Independence, Missouri hospital with serious injuries. Massey was wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident.
