Kansas City police are investigating a one-car wreck on Grandview Road that killed the only person in the vehicle.

Police said that around 4 a.m. Monday a white GMC Yukon was heading north through a series of curves when the driver lost control at Grandview and East 98th Terrace. The Yukon sheared off a utility pole before striking a tree and bursting into flames.

The driver, who police said did not appear to be wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. The identity of the driver was being withheld pending notification of relatives.
