LENEXA, Kan. -- One person was killed in a one-car accident on K-10 under the I-435 overpass early Friday morning.

Authorities received the call at about 4 a.m.

Investigators with the Kansas Highway Patrol say it appears the driver was coming around a curve at that location when he or she lost control and crashed into the overpass pillar.

They have not released information on the victim, pending family notification.

At 6:35 a.m., traffic access to the highway was still significantly reduced; westbound lanes of K-10 were still shut down, and authorities asked drivers to take an alternate route.
