OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a man was apprehended after fleeing from the scene of a fatal wreck in suburban Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reports that the crash happened Friday morning when the suspect’s vehicle veered off U.S. 69, went down an embankment and struck a pickup truck as it traveled along an Overland Park, Kansas, road. The truck’s 20-year-old driver was ejected and died at the scene. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Police Officer John Lacy says the suspect then left on foot. He was caught near a trail that’s behind a hotel. Lacy says it’s not clear yet what caused the suspect’s vehicle to leave the highway.
