The Overland Park Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol are investigating a one vehicle accident that has left one person critically injured. The accident occurred just before 1:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of Interstate 435 just west of Pflumm Road. As a  result of the accident, both of the ramps to Interstate 35 were closed for about four hours. The ramps reopened just before 5:30 a.m..

Law Enforcement from Lenexa, Overland Park and the Kansas Highway Patrol responded to the scene after receiving "numerous 911 calls" a dispatcher tells me. Fire Department units from Overland Park and Lenexa responded with Johnson County Med-Act to the scene.

A dispatcher tells me that the ramps from Interstate 435 to Interstate 35 will be "closed indefinitely" as the accident is investigated and cleared. An adult male, reportedly in his mid 20's, was the only occupant of the vehicle and he was ejected when the vehicle, a 2001 Ford Expedition, rolled over.

An unidentified caller to Operation 100 News tells me that he could, "smell a strong odor of alcohol in the crashed car." Overland Park Police also confirm that alcohol is suspected to have played a role in the accident.
