KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City, Missouri, police are investigating a man’s death after his sport utility vehicle plunged from a highway bridge.

Police tell The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2dDx28S ) workers at a construction company were retrieving pipes Monday from the company’s scrap yard near the U.S. 71 bridge when they found the mangled vehicle and the driver’s body.

Kansas City police Sgt. Bill Mahoney says the vehicle was southbound when it went over the barrier and plunged onto a pile of pipes. Mahoney said the driver died from injuries in the crash.

Police believe the crash occurred sometime well before the vehicle was found.

The driver’s name was not immediately released.
