TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- We now know who died in a fatal crash on I-470 Saturday.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers say it was 22-year-old Shaylee Oxy of Topeka.

The Topeka Capital Journal reports the vehicle was driven by 20-year-old Aryanna Declerck of Topeka, who moved the vehicle to overtake traffic.

Declerck was hospitalized to be checked out for possible injuries.

Oxy was ejected.

Troopers say she was not wearing a seatbelt.
