KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

One person injured following a multiple-vehicle crash on southbound Interstate 35 at 20th Street near downtown.

The accident, involving up to seven vehicles, happened in a construction zone shortly after 6:30 a.m. Monday, and closed both lanes of I-35 at that location.

The closing caused a major backup for motorists.

The lanes reopened about 7:15 a.m. One problem was getting tow trucks into the accident scene to remove vehicles.
