Martensen was taken to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead Friday morning. Pruit was taken to St. Mary's health center with serious injuries.
The Kansas and Missouri personal injury attorneys of the Roswold Law Group would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Waylon Martensen. We know some people feel it isn't "cool" to wear a seat belt, but we also know that seat belts save lives. If you look through our Auto Accident Blogs you will see a repeated pattern of accidents with serious injuries and deaths directly caused by people not wearing seat belts.
As Kansas City personal injury and accident attorneys, we want to encourage all Kansas and Missouri drivers and passengers to always wear seat belts. It is the single most effective vehicle safety feature you have to protect yourself and your loved ones.
