2 people from Kansas die in Missouri crash

A man and woman from Kansas City, Kan., have died after their vehicle went off the side of Interstate 29 and landed in a Missouri creek.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victims as 35-year-old Crystal Harris and 51-year-old Robert Richardson. The accident happened Saturday afternoon near the Platte County town of Dearborn.

The patrol says the driver lost control of the vehicle before swerving through a guardrail and bridge abutment. The vehicle then traveled down a steep embankment and came to rest in a creek.
