LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -- One person is dead after a head-on collision on northbound I-470 at Colbern Road.

The wreck happened about 9 a.m. Thursday. The Missouri State Highway patrol said the crash involved three vehicles.

Troopes say a car heading south on Interstate 470 crossed through the median cables into the northbound lanes. It hit an SUV, and another vehicle heading north then hit that SUV. The car that crossed over ended up on its top on the other side of the highway.

The interstate was closed after the accident but traffic is now getting through.
