LAFAYETTE COUNTY, MO – A Lee’s Summit resident was injured Monday evening after a two-vehicle crash in the westbound lanes of I-70.

Missouri Highway Patrol suggests the accident happened near the 34-mile marker in Lafayette County after a Columbia resident, Shane Kaehler, fell asleep in the driving lane. Kaehler’s errant vehicle struck a second passenger car in the passing lane which veered into a ditch. An occupant, Nandita Jana, 53, of Lee’s Summit, received minor injuries and was transported to Centerpoint Medical for treatment.
