A driver may have suffered a medical emergency before hitting two pedestrians, leaving one dead, at a Kansas City, Kansas, Walmart, in the Legends Outlet Shopping plaza on Thursday afternoon.
Police responded to calls of a crash at the 10800 block of Parallel Parkway around 2:35 p.m, said Nancy Chartrand, a spokeswoman for the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department. Investigators believe the crash was accidental, Chartrand said, and possibly stemmed from a medical emergency suffered by the driver.
Three people, including the driver, were transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. One pedestrian hit died shortly after arriving at the hospital, Chartrand said.
An alert was issued at 3:15 p.m. saying a vehicle had struck a building. The alert also asked the public to avoid the area of 108th Street and Parallel Parkway as emergency vehicles were on the scene.
