QuikTrip update with a very special first time guest correspondent. The video talks about the general contractor building his first Gen 3 QT. But the contractor we spoke to about realistic scheduling handles some of the final finishing touches at QT builds all around the Midwest. He gives a better guess at the true opening date. New goal Feb 20th. Still an uncertainty. Still weather dependant. By first of March too be safe.

Lee’s Summit, Mo. – On Wednesday, 4/18/2018 at approximately 3:05 a.m. emergency crews were called to the area of SE Shenandoah and SE Kimbrough on the report of a single car crash.

The vehicle in the accident was a 1999 Chrysler Sebring convertible.

Sgt Chris Depue, LSPD went on to explain that potential charges will take time.

No update on the crash investigation; they are working to complete the reconstruction and when the case file is completed, it will be submitted to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office for review and the filing of any charges. Normally, that takes anywhere from 6 – 10 weeks; the final piece is usually medical records and toxicology reports that take the longest to come back.
