National Guard Member Killed After Helping MO Flood Fight
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Missouri National Guard member from Kansas City died in a car accident while returning home from helping to fight flooding in northwest Missouri.
Police say 19-year-old Jordan House died Monday when a car he was riding in ran off a road in Kansas City and hit a trailer
parked on the shoulder.
The driver and another passenger in the car, also members of the guard, were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The Kansas City Star reports that investigators think the driver fell asleep.
The three guard members were returning from flood duty in Carrollton, Mo.
