Three people are dead following a single-vehicle crash along eastbound K-10

OLATHE, Kan. -- Traffic was diverted off of eastbound K-10 at  Cedar Creek Parkway early Thursday after a deadly crash.

Police say it appears the vehicle hit a guardrail around 3:30 a.m., but what caused the vehicle to hit the guardrail is still unclear.

Three people died in the crash. Their identities have not yet been released.

Johnson County deputies and Olathe police officers were on the scene, but Kansas Highway Patrol eventually took over the investigation.

Eastbound K-10 at Cedar Creek Parkway remained closed through the morning rush. It finally reopened around noon.
