Interstate 70 has reopened after a crash in Kansas City, Missouri, on Monday afternoon that killed two people.
The Kansas City Fire Department responded to the incident on westbound I-70 near the Benton Boulevard curve shortly before 2:30 p.m.
The driver of a red Dodge Ram was speeding westbound on I-70, swerving in and out of traffic, when they collided with a silver Chevrolet Silverado, lost control, and drove off the road, overturning multiple times before coming to a stop, according to police.
According to authorities, both the driver and a passenger were ejected from the Dodge and pronounced dead at the scene because they were not wearing seat belts.
At this moment, the two victims have not been named.
The westbound lanes of I-70 were stopped for many hours while crews worked on the area.
The Kansas City Police Department is in charge of the crash investigation.
