KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One person was killed in a Ray County crash just east of Excelsior Springs Wednesday evening.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says just after 5:30 p.m., Randy Owens, 56, of Excelsior Springs, was driving a 2001 Chevrolet S10 on Missouri 10 at Route M when he began to slow.

In slowing, he was struck from behind by a 2008 Buick Enclave.

Owens' S10 then overturned.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Editor's note: The Missouri State Highway Patrol originally reported the incident as a double fatality by mistake due to a technical glitch when entering the incident. MSHP updated its log after the original story had been posted. KSHB 41 has confirmed with the highway patrol that the new report of one fatality is correct.
