KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A motorcycle rider escorting a Kansas City funeral procession has died after colliding with an SUV that pulled out in front of him at an intersection.
Kansas City police say 59-year-old William George collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe at 10:45 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Independence Avenue and White Avenue.
George later died at a hospital. His hometown was not immediately available.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/o61Hi7) reports the Tahoe driver told police he thought a different driver in the procession had waved him out.
The Tahoe driver was cited for driving through a funeral procession, failing to yield and not having a valid driver's license.
