The Mitsubishi left the road to the north and struck several trees then overturned.

Officers confirmed that 4-year-old Angela Smhlovic, who was a passenger in the Mitsubishi, was partially ejected and did die later after her arrival at Children's Mercy Hospital. 

Authorities say the driver of the Mitsubishi was 53-year-old Omer Hamsic of Kansas City, Missouri. Police announced Tuesday that he had died

The driver of the Honda was not injured.

Records show there have been nearly 50 traffic wrecks on the 1,000-foot stretch of road where the crash occurred. Residents have been petitioning Kansas City's Public Improvements Advisory Committee for funds to make the roadway safer.
