One person is dead, and three others are injured following a rollover crash on Interstate 35 just north of 87th Street in Lenexa.

An online crash log from the Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday.

A 2016 Chevy Cruze and 2000 Ford F-350 pickup truck were both driving northbound on I-35 at that time.

The crash log says the Cruze, driven by Martin Perez Trejo, 28, of Kansas City Missouri, was “traveling at a high rate of speed” and rear-ended the F-350.

The F-350 veered off the side of the highway and overturned. Two people inside the truck were both ejected from the vehicle.

The Cruze also came to rest on the side of the highway.

Johnson County Med-Act ambulances transported three people to an area hospital, one with critical injuries after being ejected from a rolling vehicle.

Trejo, the driver of the Cruze, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another occupant of the Cruze has been identified as Jasmine Alcala, 27, of Kansas City, Kansas. She was hospitalized with suspected serious injuries, according to the crash log.

Both occupants of the F-350 truck were also hospitalized with suspected serious injures. They have been identified as Tracy Kintzelle, 48, of Independence, Missouri, and William Hansett, 33, of Leawood.

All three injured people were taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

Highway patrol troopers and Lenexa Police closed two northbound lanes of I-35 as they investigated the crash scene.

All lanes reopened around 5 a.m.

The Kansas Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash.
