KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Pleasant Hill man is dead after a crash in Cass County.

Missouri State Highway Patrol say 22-year-old Gabriel Smith died when the car he was driving crashed into several trees just after midnight on Saturday. Authorities say he crashed on MO-7, north of E. 203rd Street after he over-corrected when he traveled off the road, causing him to crash on the opposite side of the road.

Smith was partially ejected from the vehicle. He was later pronounced dead at Centerpoint Hospital.

His 22-year-old passenger from Indepedence faced moderate injuries.
