KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday night on Missouri 210 after being struck by two different vehicles.

The unidentified motorcyclist was eastbound on Missouri 210 shortly before 5:30 p.m. and had a green light approaching the intersection with Eldon Ave./Ameristar Drive, according to the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department.

A westbound Buick turned left toward the casino in front of the motorcycle, ejecting the rider.

As the motorcyclist was lying on the pavement and before witnesses could get to him, an eastbound SUV ran the motorcyclist over.

Passers-by attempted to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before the motorcyclist was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Missouri 210 eastbound was closed at Interstate 435 for two hours as KCPD investigated the crash. The highway was reopened around 7:45 p.m.

Police have yet to identify the victim, pending notification of family.

This is KCMO's 85th vehicular death in 2018 compared with 98 such fatalities at this time last year.
