Overland Park man dies in fiery Miami County crash

Update: The Miami County Sheriff's Office corrected its initial information to say the man was heading north, not south.

An Overland Park man died Sunday when his SUV ran off of U.S. 69 at 287th Street and struck a bridge pillar head-on and caught fire.

Andre Philip Dight, 47, was pronounced at the scene.

Dight's KIA Borrego was traveling north on U.S. 69 about 2:30 p.m. when the SUV apparently left the roadway onto the grass shoulder, the Miami County Sheriff's Office reported.

The vehicle was on fire in the east ditch under 287th Street when emergency crews arrived.
