A 34-year-old Kansas City man was killed in a wreck about 10:40 a.m. Saturday at Bannister Road and U.S. 71.
A silver 2005 Ford Focus was on the entrance ramp to southbound U.S. 71 from Bannister Road when the driver apparently lost control, police said. The vehicle left the roadway and ran down an embankment, where it hit a tree.
The driver, who was alone in the car, died at the scene.
The man’s name has not yet been released.
