A man was killed Tuesday morning in a traffic wreck on Interstate 435 in Overland Park.

The crash was reported at 6:47 a.m. on the southbound ramp of eastbound I-435 and U.S. 69 highway, said Officer John Lacy, a spokesman for the Overland Park Police Department.

The crash occurred when a driver lost control while merging southbound and struck a cement barrier. After the impact, the vehicle entered another lane and was struck on the driver’s side by a second vehicle.

Robert E. Klusman, of Lenexa, was killed.

No other injuries were reported.

The ramp was closed for several hours after the wreck.
