Police identify 2 killed in MO motorcycle crash

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) - A 45-year-old man and his stepdaughter's 13-year-old friend have been identified as the victim of a Kansas City motorcycle crash.

The Kansas City Star reported Anastasia Allen jumped at the chance for the ride because she had never been on a motorcycle before Wednesday night.

The accident occurred when the motorcycle she and Troy Mitchell were on struck a guardrail on the ramp to Interstate 35 in the northeast area of Kansas City.

Police think Mitchell missed a small curve on the ramp.

Both he and Anastasia were wearing helmets.
