Garden City man injured in motorcycle crash

On 5/20/19 around 2:50pm the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a two vehicle accident involving a motorcycle on Route B at Rush Road in rural Cass County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred when the 2015 GMC Sierra driven by 59 year old Joseph M. Renfro of Garden City, Missouri slowed for a mail carrier he was following and changed lanes to alert following traffic as he passed the mail carrier he was overtaking quickly by the 2016 Honda Motorcycle driven by 19 year old Ryan C.

The Honda entered a skid and struck the ground ejecting the rider from the motorcycle before sliding to a final rest.
