KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One person was killed in a crash on U.S. 71 near Longview Road early Wednesday morning in Kansas City, Missouri.
According to KCPD, a silver Lincoln Zephyr was exiting U.S. 71 south at a high speed and continued through a red light at Red Bridge and onto the ramp to Longview Road.
The driver lost control in a roundabout and went off the road, through a six-foot chain link fence and eventually into a building. The crash happened around 12:30 a.m.
KCPD said the car caught fire.
The driver — who police identified Friday morning as Sean D. Johnson, 47, of Grandview — was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
KCFD was called to the scene for the "destroyed building."
