Troopers say Doan was driving, a 2004 Chevrolet Silverardo 1500, on the ramp from southbound Interstate 35 to northbound Interstate 635 when the truck hit a guard rail.
The driver overcorrected, drove through a ditch and then went airborne across the northbound lanes of Interstate 635. The truck came to rest in the east ditch of the ramp from northbound Interstate 35 to northbound Interstate 635, according to the highway patrol's report.
Another driver reportedly witnessed the truck crash and called 911. Arriving officers immediately requested Johnson County Med-Act to respond to the scene.
Overland Park firefighters arrived at the scene to report one pickup truck with heavy damage.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
The ramp reopened shortly after 7 a.m.
Officers from Merriam and Overland Park also assisted at the scene.
