An 89-year-old man was killed Tuesday after the elderly driver’s car rammed the back of a dump truck on Interstate 435 just north of 87th Street in Lenexa.
Wilfred Bennett of Lenexa was killed when the 2007 Buick Lacrosse he was driving north on I-435 about 11:15 a.m. ran into the back of a dump truck that had slowed for traffic.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Bennett died at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt, authorities said.
The dump truck driver was not hurt.
The wreck temporarily closed two northbound lanes of I-435. All lanes of traffic were re-opened about 3 p.m. Tuesday.
