KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A second person involved in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 70 in Kansas City, Kan., has died.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/Uhyasw) reports 66-year-old Otis Estell of Kansas City, Kan., died Thursday morning. Another Kansas City, Kan., resident, 47-year-old William Jerdee, died at the scene of the accident Wednesday night.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says Estell was driving has 1993 Ford Explorer east in the westbound lanes with his lights off around 8 p.m. when he struck Jerdee's 1999 Ford Escort.
The crash caused the westbound lanes of the stretch of interstate known as the Lewis and Clark Viaduct, which connects Kansas City, Mo., with Kansas City, Kan., to be shut down for two hours.
