KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 19-year-old Kansas City woman has been charged in connection with an accident that killed a 25-year-old man after he got out of a vehicle stopped along a Kansas City highway.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://j.mp/2cR54Ec ) police say the victim asked an Uber driver to pull over along Interstate 435 early Saturday because he was sick. Police say the driver stopped on the highway shoulder and the passenger got out. A car then left the roadway and struck the victim and the vehicle he had been in.

The victim’s identity hasn’t been released.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s said in a release Alannis J. Bremer was driving the car that hit the victim and was charged Saturday with involuntary manslaughter and second-degree assault. It’s unclear if Bremer has a lawyer.
