A 44-year-old Kansas City man was critically injured late Tuesday when the car he was driving slid into a tree.
Police said the accident near the Oldham Road and Gregory Boulevard intersection in Swope Park might have gone unnoticed had a tow truck driver on his way to another accident not seen the man in the wrecked car. Police were notified about 11:15 p.m.
Sgt. Bill Mahoney said the man was extricated from the car. Rain on the street likely was a factor, he said. The second accident did not involve serious injuries
