Lenexa Police have identified the man who died early Wednesday morning along Interstate 435 as Joshua N. Williams, 34, of Bonner Springs. Authorities say the van was traveling from Eudora to the Kansas City area.

Police spokesman Master Police Officer Dan Friesen tells Operation 100 News reporting partners at the Lawrence Journal-World that Williams was with three other people in the minivan, when he got into an argument - for an unknown reason - with another person in the back seat of the mini van.

The argument became physical, prompting the driver to stop in the east bound lanes on I-435 just west of Lackman Road.

Williams and others exited the vehicle south of the highway where the fight continued, and at some point during the altercation Williams collapsed. Other occupants of the vehicle called for medical assistance at 3:47 a.m.

Johnson County Med-Act transported Williams to an area hospital where he later died. Officers questioned three people with the vehicle and released them.

"No charges have been filed pending autopsy results and further review by the Johnson County district attorney's office," Firesen said.
