KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say two teenage cousins have died in a Kansas City crash.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2m3RbJ8 ) reports that the crash happened Saturday night after 17-year-old Ra’Shad Leggs and 19-year-old Quentin Leggs went out to see a movie and struck another car that was exiting a shopping center. The teens’ vehicle then hit the curb, went airborne and struck a tree.

Leisa Leggs, Quentin’s mother, said Monday that crews cut both teens from the wreckage. Ra’Shad died at the scene, and Quentin Leggs died at a hospital.

Both teens were interested in the medical field. Quentin Leggs had been about to start a job Monday at Children’s Mercy Hospital, while Ra’Shad Leggs had recently decided he wanted to study to be a pediatrician.
