Kansas City police have identified a 24-year-old man who died Sunday night in a crash in the city’s East Bottoms.
Hoang T. Nguyen, of Kansas City, was killed in the one-vehicle wreck, which occurred just after 9 p.m. Sunday in the 1800 block of North Topping Avenue.
Police said Nguyen apparently lost control as he drove south on Topping. The car left the road, struck a large rock and overturned in a parking lot. Police said it appeared the car was traveling at a high rate of speed.
Nguyen was taken to a hospital, where he died.
It was Kansas City’s 56th traffic fatality of the year, police said.
