Fairway Police are investigating after a driver was killed in a crash with a tree early Sunday morning.

A Westwood officer reported a vehicle failing to yield to him in the area of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Norwood Road around 2:20 a.m. The officer reported the vehicle was "in excess of 100 miles-per-hour."

The Westwood officer discontinued the pursuit, but continued to drive in the direction where the vehicle was headed.

The car was found crashed and on fire in the 5600 block of Norwood Road seconds later.

Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming says the Westwood officer attempted to stop the vehicle for traffic charges on Shawnee Mission Parkway near Belinder. The driver pulled into a parking lot and then immediately back onto the street striking another vehicle on Shawnee Mission Parkway.

The driver then accelerated across Shawnee Mission Parkway and went south of Norwood Street at a very high rate of speed.

"In the 5600 block of Norwood the vehicle struck two parked cars and two trees before coming to a rest in the driveway of 5612 Norwood," according to Chief Fleming.

The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Chief Fleming has identified the driver as Grant Oliver McClure, 26, of Overland Park, Kansas.
