James W. Wilson, 54, Lisa R. Wilson, 44, and Carol E. Wehking, 75, dead, two injured in violent 4-vehicle crash on I-29 and 92 Highway in Platte City, Missouri
Three people were killed Friday afternoon in a car crash in Platte City. It happened at about 12:30 p.m. and I-29 and 92 Highway. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash involved four vehicles.
Troopers said it was stopped on the highway behind the bobtail of a tractor trailer truck when a white Dodge pickup truck slammed into the back of the Envoy at full highway speed -- about 75 miles per hour -- crushing the SUV between the pickup and the bobtail.
A Highway Patrol spokesman said the crash happened at 12:24 p.m. when a pickup driver didn't see that traffic was stopped ahead of them due to a lane closed for striping work.
