KANSAS CITY, Kan. — One man in his sixties died early Tuesday morning in a one-car accident along I-635 and K-5 in Kansas City, Kan.

The crash happened around 2:30 Tuesday morning in the southbound lanes.

There were two people in the small compact car when the driver crossed over the highway, rolled the vehicle and ended up on a grassy hill.

“Roll over accidents are immensely survivable, as long as you got your seatbelt on,” said an officer with the Kansas Highway Patrol. “It’s the only little thing we can do to keep us safe when we make a mistake like that.”

The driver, identified as Kevin Fisk, 60, was not wearing a seatbelt. He died at the scene. A 35-year-old male passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries. He called authorities to report the accident.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said speed may have been a factor.
