KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a FedEx driver has been killed in a fiery, multi-vehicle wreck in Kansas City.

Police Capt. Joe Crayon says the crash happened Tuesday on Interstate 435 when the FedEx driver rear-ended a pickup truck that was stopped in traffic. The FedEx truck then crashed into a guardrail.

The Kansas City Star reports that several people tried to help the driver but were unable to reach him. Four vehicles were involved, and the crash stopped traffic for several hours while police gathered evidence. There were no other serious injuries.

The driver’s name has not been released, pending notification of relatives.

FedEx offered condolences to the family and friends of those involved in a statement. The statement also said that the company is cooperating fully with authorities.
