by Kim Fickett
Landmark reporter

A car accident last Tuesday morning in Platte City left an 83-year-old Weston man hospitalized in North Kansas City.

The accident occurred at 9:37 a.m. at Zed Martin and Second Streets. The vehicle driven by 83-year-old George Hayden was headed west on Zed Martin when police say he failed to obey a stop sign at the T-shaped intersection. The car crossed Second Street, went airborne, and landed in a lot where the car continued until hitting a trash bin at 908 2nd Street.

Three other passengers were also in the vehicle at the time of the accident. 77-year-old, Verna Hayden of Weston, 70-year-old Roy Dunn of Weston, and 67-year-old Martha Dunn of Weston. The three passengers were treated and released.

According to Platte City Police Chief Bill Massock, George Hayden remained in intensive care as of press time and suffered spinal cord injuries. No citations have been issued at this time and the accident is still under investigation.
