KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One person is dead following a two-vehicle collision Monday night.

Police say a Ford and a Chevy  were traveling south on Holmes Road, approaching 115th Street when the Ford, which was in front of the Chevy slowed or stopped to make a left turn onto 115th Street.

Investigators say the Chevy swerved to the left and struck the driver’s side door of the Ford as it was turning. The collision pushed the Ford off the road and to the left. The Ford then struck a gas main.
