Police: 2 dead, 1 missing in Kansas City firetruck crash

(AP) — Two people are dead and another is feared buried under rubble after a firetruck collided with another vehicle, then plowed over a sidewalk and into a building a Kansas City entertainment district. 

The Kansas City Star reports that two people in a sport utility vehicle hit by the firetruck Wednesday night died in the crash, and a pedestrian struck during the collision was believed to be buried under the wreckage and rubble from the partially-collapsed building. 

Police say the crash happened just before 10:30 p.m. as the firetruck headed to an emergency call with its lights and siren on, hitting the SUV at an intersection in the Westport Entertainment District. 

No firefighters were injured.
