Divers find body after searching submerged car in Overland Park

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

Divers have found the body of a 20-year-old woman inside a car that apparently drove off a southern Johnson County bridge.

Troopers say Anousha Ann Shirazi, of Fairway, was driving on U.S. 69 Highway near 167th Street when her car veered into the median, hit the inside of the guardrail, then flipped over and down into the Blue River, 20 feet below.

Investigators are now trying to figure out when the accident happened since no one called it in.

"We're working it as a crime scene at this point. It is a fatality crash," said Lt. KL Woods with the Kansas Highway Patrol. "We don't have any idea if it was a sleepy driver, intoxicated driver, a medical condition. At this point we have no idea until the investigation is completed."

A trooper spotted the damage out on his normal patrol about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

"Happened to notice some debris and some guard rail damage that appeared to be fresh, turned around and came back to inspect the damage, and found that there was, indeed, a vehicle down in the creek and upside down," Woods said.

With so little to go on, troopers are asking anyone who may have seen anything unusual in the area early Sunday morning to give them a call and help bring answers to a family that's grieving an unexpected loss.
