It happened just before 2:30 a.m., near Quivira Road and 183rd Street in southern Overland Park.
A 911 caller reported that she witnessed a vehicle crash, possibly into a creek near the intersection, and that she could no longer see the vehicle from her home. Fire/Rescue crews from Johnson County Fire District Number 2 along with Johnson County Sheriff Deputies and Overland Park Police were dispatched to the scene.
Fire crews arrived, at 2:32 a.m. reporting that there was one vehicle, a Kia mini-van, involved which had sustained heavy damage to the front end. One person was found to be trapped inside the vehicle with critical injuries. An additional fire apparatus and Johnson County Med-Act Supervisor were both requested to respond to the scene for assistance with what fire crews called "an extensive extrication."
Crews worked for approximately 25 minutes to remove the trapped driver from the vehicle. The driver is said to be an approximately 30-year-old male.
Rescue crews also reported a "strong smell of Alcohol" from the vehicle.
Police and Firefighters also checked the surrounding area for the possibility that a passenger had been ejected. No other victims were located in their search.
