Overland Park Police say a man in his early 20s was killed in a two-vehicle crash on eastbound Interstate-435 just east of Quivira on Thursday afternoon.

Shortly before 2 p.m., officers and firefighters were called to investigate a rollover crash on the exit road from eastbound I-435 to US-69 Highway. Arriving officers reported one vehicle on its roof, and one person ejected from another vehicle.

Overland Park Police Department spokesperson Officer John Lacy says a 23-year-old man was thrown from his vehicle and died on the scene.
