A Grain Valley High School senior died early Sunday in a two-car accident on U.S. 40 in eastern Blue Springs.
Savannah Domann, 17, died in an accident that occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday. According to Blue Springs Police, Domann was a passenger in a vehicle that was eastbound on U.S. 40, east of Adams Dairy Parkway, when it apparently hit a deer. The impact caused her vehicle to move into the westbound lane, where it was struck by an oncoming vehicle.
Police said two other people involved in the accident were taken to the hospital with injuries believed to be non-life threatening.
The accident remains under investigation. Grain Valley High School had counselors available for students Tuesday morning at the school building.
