Liberty Teen Killed in Clay County Crash Monday Afternoon

A Liberty teen was killed in a Clay County crash Monday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on 112th Street, just east of Route A, when a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Kansas City resident Jacob A. Davidson was heading eastbound.

Troopers say Davidson’s vehicle crested a hill, went off the right side of the road, overcorrected, began skidding, ran off the left side of the road, overturned, and struck a tree.

A passenger in the vehicle, 17-year-old Benjamin C. Mundy, was pronounced dead at Liberty Hospital later in the afternoon.

No injuries were listed for Davidson.
