The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle on Interstate 435 in Johnson County.

A Shawnee police officer reported the accident in the southbound lanes of Interstate 435 just before 10 p.m., about same time as emergency dispatchers say they started receiving 9-1-1 calls.

The officer reported a tractor trailer, partially in the median of the interstate, and several other vehicles stopped nearby.

Shawnee firefighters reported one person was found deceased in the middle of the interstate.

Troopers have identified the pedestrian as Shaun P. Robinson, 26, of Kansas City, Kansas.

Investigators say Robinson was walking westbound across the southbound lanes of the interstate when he was struck by a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser and then several other vehicles.

The driver of the PT Cruiser has been identified as a 52-year-old Merriam woman. She was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries from the accident.

Troopers say that Robinson was driving a Nissan pickup truck southbound on I-435 when he rear ended a tractor-trailer. Robinson and the tractor-trailer both pulled to the shoulder of the interstate, when for an unknown reason, Robinson exited his vehicle and attempted to walk across the southbound lanes. He was then struck by the vehicles. The driver of the tractor trailer was not injured.

Authorities shutdown all southbound lanes of the interstate at Johnson Drive to investigate the accident and map the scene.

All lanes of the interstate reopened shortly after 4 a.m..

Troopers continue to investigate the accident and no other details have been released.

VIDEO: Cigarette and gusty winds likely cause of JoCo house fire

Posted: January 27, 2014 - 1:24am
Updated: January 27, 2014 - 1:51am

Overland Park Fire Investigators believe a carelessly discarded cigarette and gusty winds sparked a house fire this morning.


Crews were called to a home in the 9600 block of W. 128th Terrace just before midnight Sunday. A resident reported fire on the side of the house.

First crews on the scene reported smoke and fire visible from around a second level window. All occupants of the home were outside when crews arrived.

The fire was quickly knocked down and mostly contained to the home's exterior.

A news release says there is minor fire damage to the inside of the home.

No injuries were reported.

One crew from the Olathe Fire Department assisted on the call.

Overland Park Fire says the dry and windy conditions are causing an increased fire risk. "If you smoke, you should always fully extinguish cigarettes in sand or water."

More information on fire safety can be found on the Overland Park Fire Department's website.
