KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One woman suffered life-threatening injuries in a single-vehicle crash Saturday in Kansas City, Missouri.

Police responded shortly after 6 p.m. to the East 87th Street exit ramp off of northbound Interstate 435. A black Hyundai, heading north in I-435, was passing vehicles on the right in the exit lane at a “high rate of speed,” according to a news release.

The driver was unable to get back on the interstate, lost control on the exit ramp and struck a “concrete highway sign support” on the left side of the vehicle.

Prior to the crash, the woman also was involved in a hit-and-run investigation with a second vehicle near Red Bridge and Hillcrest roads.

Impairment is “under investigation,” according to the release.
