Teen Dies in Weather-Related Crash

MetroSource NewsDecember 28, 2018

An Overland Park teenager is dead following a Thursday-morning crash on the I-70 near Oakley.

Highway Patrol officials say the victim, 16-year-old Jackson Buerge, was a passenger in an SUV that rear-ended a semi tractor-trailer. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and died about an hour later. Three family members also suffered serious injuries in the crash. The driver of the semi was not injured.

It happened around 10 a.m., less than an hour before authorities reportedly closed that part of the road due to weather conditions.
