KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Two people were killed Saturday night in a car crash at 86th and Ward Parkway.

According to Kansas City, Mo., police, the crash happened at about 7:10pm.

Initially, one person was reported dead, but then Sgt. Bill Mahoney confirmed a second victim.

Police say the crash involved a red car and a silver car. The red car was pulling out of the Ward Parkway Shopping Center, attempting to turn north on Ward Parkway when it collided with the silver car.

The adult male in the silver car was pronounced dead at the scene; the male passenger in the silver car died at the hospital.

Both the driver and the passenger in the red car are okay and remained on the scene to talk to police.

Northbound Ward Parkway was expected to be closed for at least two hours as police continued their investigation.

"There's a lot of traffic that comes and goes from the mall. Anytime you get a lot of traffic, same as the sports complex, you're going to have a lot of collisions but not really very serious ones. This is unusual," said Sgt. Mahoney.

Police identified the victims Sunday night as driver 17-year-old Ra'Shad D. Leggs, and passenger 19-year-old Quentin D. Leggs, both of Kansas City, Mo.
