At 8 pm, Tuesday, KCPD responded to  a one-vehicle collision with serious injuries.

Witnesses reported that a red Volkswagen and two additional cars were racing north on Interstate 435, at speeds over 100 mph. All three vehicles were weaving in and out of traffic until the red Volkswagen lost control. The Volkswagen went off the road to the left, into the grassy median. The Volkswagen ran out of median, flying off the overpass onto Oldham Road below. It landed front-end first then fell onto the right side.

Passing motorists stopped to help and flipped the Volkswagen back onto its wheels. The driver and passenger, wearing their seatbelts, were removed and transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.

The unknown silver sedan and tan sedan that were racing the Volkswagen continued on north Interstate 435.
