Two people were found dead inside a burned car early Saturday after Jackson County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a car crash.

The crash happened at Milton Thompson and Langsofrd roads, in the area southwest of Lake Lotawna.

Initially, Jackson County got a call reporting a careless driver in the area of Missouri 7 and Liggett Road in south Blue Springs. As deputies approached the area, around 12:30 a.m., they got another call, this time about a vehicle fire at Milton Thompson and Langsford.

Firefighters from Prairie Township Fire Protection District quickly extinguished the fire in the vehicle, which was upside down off the roadway in the 10700 block of Milton Thompson.

Deputies found the remains of two people inside the vehicle.

Investigators were able to determine that the vehicle was southbound at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. The vehicle ran off the east side of the road, hit a large rock and overturned.

The victims have not been identified.
