KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police were on the scene of a fatal accident at 41st and Prospect Wednesday night. A driver hit a light pole in the area and their vehicle rolled over and hit a house. Police said the deceased victim was a man.
Witnesses told FOX 4's Megan Brilley at the scene that they saw a car speeding northbound on Prospect before careening to the left. Police say the car hit light poles and then ran into the house. There were people inside the home, but none were injured. They said they felt the entire house shake on impact.
Witnesses also said they didn't see any debris in the road; investigators do believe the driver's speed played a role in the crash. FOX 4 will update this story with further information and the victim's identity as those details are released.
