TROY, Kan. -- (WDAF) -- An 8-year-old girl was killed in a crash Sunday. The Kansas Highway Patrol says Cadence Orcutt was the one driving with her grandfather in the car. The crash happened on rural, unpaved 175th Road near Peck Road in Troy, Kansas. The small town is West of St. Joseph, Mo.
Fifty-six-year-old Dennis Meers tells investigators he let his granddaughter drive and she lost control, sending the Chevrolet Cobalt careening down an embankment landing on its top in a watery ravine below.
