A recent publication from Fox 4 Kansas City highlighted the national rise in fatal car accidents. KCMO has not been immune, with more than twice the number of fatal car crashes in 2022 compared to the same time last year.

"The Kansas City Police Department said that compared to this time last year, the city has seen more than twice the amount of fatal car crashes. At this point in 2021, Kansas City saw 10 fatalities from traffic crashes. In 2022, the number so far is 21." According to the article by Fox 4, The U.S. Department of Transportation reported the highest number of traffic related deaths in 2020 since 2007, according to police.

The Kansas City metro started off the new year with a lot of winter weather throughout the metro, creating hazardous travel conditions for drivers in many parts of the state. Law enforcement and government are warning about the uptick in fatal accidents and are reminding motorists about the risks of the road.
