Officers and road crews avoided a big backup on 50 Highway Monday morning by shutting down all the eastbound lanes.
Lee's Summit Police said one vehicle crashed under an overpass near Highway 291 just after 5 a.m. Monday. The driver was not seriously injured.
Officers blocked the road for cleanup until about 6:30 a.m. to avoid a rush hour backup.
