GRANDVIEW, Mo. — A pedestrian was killed and three other people were injured Thursday after a crash on southbound Interstate 49 in Grandview.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol closed the southbound lanes for several hours following the three-vehicle crash, but the interstate has since reopened Thursday morning.
The highway patrol said the crash happened when a ladder fell off of a van and the person stopped to retrieve the ladder on the highway.
