Road safety will always be underrated. No matter where you are driving, it is always of utmost importance to treat road rules with reverence. After all, it often comes down to the matter of life and death. Authorities across the US have tried to impress the importance of driving cautiously and safely at all times, yet this message seems to have gone unheard among a big part of the population. Consequently, accidents still happen and lives are lost. Such was the case with an incident that transpired on Sunday.

The accident took place on the 152, where the cyclist was weaving between the lanes when disaster struck. The cyclist, whose identity is yet to be disclosed to the public, collided with the white Chevrolet at the intersection of eastbound 152 Highway and 169 Highway. The incident took place at 2:21 a.m., according to Capt. Corey Carlisle, a spokesperson for the Kansas City Police Department.

The collision was no small matter either. In fact, the impact of the collision was so severe that the cyclist was ejected from their bike, leading to critical injuries. Despite a swift response from first responders and paramedics, the cyclist was unable to survive.

The incident also points towards a rather terrifying trend of road fatalities in Kansas City. Local authorities say the collision was the 81st road fatality of the year. The number has increased noticeably from 74 at the same time last year.

This upward trend indicates that all road users, including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians, must remain vigilant at all times. Additional measures need to be taken by the community as well as Kansas City’s elected officials.

Road accidents like these don’t just affect the victim. They hurt the morale of the victim’s family and the community as a whole. We are hoping that the one responsible for this accident is brought to justice.
