A 25-year-old Nepali woman has been killed in a car crash at Kansas City in the U.S. state of Missouri.

Urmila Sharma, who reportedly hails from eastern Nepal district of Jhapa, was killed Wednesday when her car slammed into the back of a paint-striping crew truck on the Kansas Turnpike near Wellington, according to a report in the U.S. online news portal Kansas.com.

The car was traveling at highway speeds, Bell said, when the crash occurred at 11:30 am, just north of the Wellington exit, the report quoted the Kansas Turnpike Authority spokeswoman Rachel Bell as saying.
