KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One person is dead after a crash near 23rd Street and Topping Avenue late Thursday night.

KCPD said a blue Honda Accord was traveling south on Topping at a high rate of speed.

They were just south of Topping when the driver lost control of the car and went off the left side of the road.

The car hit a large rock and began to flip, running into more large rocks and a big tree.

Both of the people in the car were ejected. Police said neither of them were wearing a seatbelt.

Both were taken to a local hospital.

The driver, who later died at the hospital, was identified Friday afternoon as Ethel Daye, 44, of Kansas City, Missouri.

The passenger has life-threatening injuries.
