A 9-year-old girl was killed and four others injured Sunday in a rollover, one-vehicle accident on Interstate 70, just outside of Grain Valley at the 37-mile marker.
The victim’s name has not been released. The accident occurred at 6:27 p.m. as the vehicle was traveling westbound on I-70 when the driver lost control and overturned in a nearby ditch. Two occupants in the backseat were ejected, including the victim. She was not wearing a seat belt, the Missouri Highway Patrol reported.
The investigation continued Sunday night.
