Kansas City, Kansas Police are investigating after a vehicle struck a light pole, a guardrail and ended up partially down an embankment this morning.

The accident was first reported to Roeland Park Police just before 3:10 a.m., on County Line Road near Fontana Street. Officers arrived to find the vehicle down an embankment west of County Line Road and Suntree Plaza on the Kansas City, Kansas side of the border, towards Roe Lane.

At least four fire crews were dispatched to the scene, between Kansas City, Kansas Fire and Johnson County Consolidated Fire District No. 2.

Johnson County crews were first on the scene and reported the vehicle had sustained heavy damage and came to rest in an area surrounded by brush.

Crews stabilized the vehicle and worked for just under 10 minutes to extricate the driver.

Johnson County Med-Act reported the man's injuries to be serious. Kansas City, Kansas EMS transported him to an area hospital for treatment.

Law enforcement sources confirm to Operation 100 News that the vehicle was about 20 feet from the roadway and likely traveling around 40 miles per hour when the crash occurred.

Officers are investigating if weather or alcohol may have contributed to the accident.
