Two people were killed Saturday afternoon in a dump truck crash on Interstate 29 at Bee Creek Bridge in Platte County.
The northbound lanes of the interstate were closed about four hours as Missouri Highway Patrol troopers investigated the crash, which was reported about 12:30 p.m. near Dearborn. Traffic was also backed up in the southbound lanes.
The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the victims as the driver, Robert S. Richardson, 51, and passenger, Crystal L. Harris, 35, both of Kansas City, Kan.
Both victims were in the truck, which ended up off the road upside down.
