Truck Drops onto Interstate in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY - Traffic is flowing again on Interstate 70 in northwest Kansas City. The road was closed for more than five hours after a truck drove off a ramp and dropped onto the interstate.
The accident happened about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday when the tractor-trailer hit a guardrail on a ramp from Interstate 35 and eventually fell onto I-70. The truck landed on its roof and debris was thrown across eastbound lanes.
The westbound lanes opened about 8:30 a.m. but the eastbound lanes did not open until nearly noon.
The truck driver was hospitalized with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
