KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A deadly crash that occurred Thursday around 10:30 a.m. shut down northbound K-7 at Parallel Parkway for nearly three hours. Police say the crash involved a white SUV, a box truck, another car and the victim's SUV.

"The SUV was stopped at the light.....The white SUV, traveling at a high rate of speed, traveling westbound on Parallel struck right to the back of our victim's vehicle and that vehicle basically got sandwiched in between the fast-moving SUV and the box truck," said Officer Cameron Morgan, KCK Police.

Traffic was detoured onto State Avenue East as investigators worked to determine what happen.

The driver of the white SUV was taken to the hospital and the driver of the brown SUV, 68-year-old Paul W. Scott of Tonganoxie, Kan., was killed.

At least one neighbor told FOX 4 that the crash happened in a dangerous area.

"It was nice years ago, but now, this is like living on a highway," Lloyd Seifkas said.

Seifkas says he's lived in the area since the 1970s -- and he sees wrecks on a regular basis -- caused by dangerous drivers.

"You hear and see motorcycles doing wheelies up the road four-wide. Cars coming down the hill doing 80 to 90. You hear the brakes squealing and tires squealing before they hit the light. Sometimes, they stop and sometimes, they don't," he described.

No one has been cited in the crash.
