One person is dead and another is in custody after a crash on Interstate 635 at Kansas Avenue.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said 61-year-old Melody Carol Hinshaw, of Kansas City, MO, was killed in the wreck.

Troopers say a car ran into the back of Hinshaw's 2009 Kawasaki about 11:15 p.m. Sunday. The force threw her from the bike.

The driver of that car was arrested at the scene. It is unclear whether that person was hurt.

Authorities say Hinshaw was wearing a helmet and protective glasses.

Troopers are looking for anyone who might have been in that area to confirm what happened.

If you saw anything, call police.
