KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A fatal crash closed part of the Three Trails Crossing Monday morning.

It happened around 6:30 a.m. on Interstate 435 northbound before 71 Highway.

Because of that, the I-435 northbound ramp was closed.

The vehicle involved in the crash went off the road and into the grassy area below one of the overpasses as it attempted to take the exit for I-435 northbound from I-435 eastbound.

The car flipped end-over-end several times, partially ejecting the driver, according to the police.

The driver, identified as 32-year-old Joshua Branham of Independence, was killed in the crash.
