KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Kansas, woman was killed in a two-vehicle collision with a box truck after striking a deer Monday evening in Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Deborah D. Yelverton, 56, was traveling southbound on Interstate 435 at Missouri Route 152 just after 6:30 p.m. Monday.

Yelverton struck a deer and her 2022 Ford Explorer became disabled and was blocking the road, MSHP says.

Her Explorer was then hit by a 2015 Isuzu box truck.

She was transported to an area hospital, and pronounced dead shortly after 11 p.m.

Yelverton was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.
