KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A driver died in a single-vehicle crash after a vehicle left the roadway early Saturday morning in Kansas City, Missouri.
The driver of a white Lexus IS 250 was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of U.S. 169 around 2:46 a.m. on Saturday at a high speed, per KCPD.
The Lexus attempted to exit the interstate onto Richards Road and failed to successfully complete a turn.
The vehicle left the roadway and collided with a metal guard rail, before crashing into a concrete bridge support pillar.
KCPD says the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle — identified Tuesday as Jared Vawter, 25 — died on the scene.
