Pedestrian killed on Anderson

By The Mercury

A pedestrian was killed after being struck by a vehicle Saturday morning in the 5900 block of Anderson Avenue about 2.5 miles west of Scenic Drive.

Authorities had not released the name of the victim Saturday pending notification of next of kin. They were called to the scene at approximately 6:50 a.m.  The accident is still under investigation; troopers from the Kansas Highway Patrol’s accident reconstruction team assisted RCPD officers.

Not known at this time is whether authorities have identified the driver of the vehicle — no name was released — or whether charges would be filed.

Anderson Avenue from 69th to Scenic Drive was closed for approximately four hours during the on-scene investigation.
