PLATTE CITY, Mo. - UPDATE: North Kansas City Hospital personnel said Benjamin Shively died unexpectedly on Saturday night due to complications directly related to the fatal wrong-way crash.
He is the second victim in the crash from July 2.
One person is dead after the driver of a stolen pickup truck led police on a high-speed chase down the wrong way of a Kansas City interstate on Wednesday.
The Platte County Sheriff's Office said 35-year-old suspect Justin Burkholder stole a red pickup truck and proceeded to evade police along I-29 in the Northland. He drove the wrong way on southbound I-29 before crashing into a Suburban near Twin Bridges.
"It was like something from out of a movie," said Rosa Cavitt. "I couldn't believe it. It really scared me and I started swerving trying to get out of the way. I'm just glad my kids and husband are OK."
Both southbound lanes and one northbound lane of I-29 were closed as police and emergency crews responded. The interstate was reopened around 5:35 p.m.
"I just tried to get out of the way, and then I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the red truck hit the other car and it was a loud boom," said motorist Kale Wattenbarger.
Burkholder died at the scene.
The driver of the Suburban was taken to the hospital with serious to life-threatening injuries.
Police said the stolen truck contained stolen weapons.
Burkholder had a felony probation violation warrant out of Wyandotte County and three failure to appear warrants out of North Kansas City, Mo. He also had a suspended Missouri driver's license.
