Wreck between semi, second vehicle closes I-435 for several hours

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A wreck between a semi-truck and a car closed Interstate 435 near World's of Fun for several hours Sunday.

The crash happened about 9:15 a.m. on southbound I-435, just north of Northeast Parvin Road. It closed all lanes.

Witnesses said the semi merged over to a lane and somehow landed on top of the smaller car. A KCTV5 photographer got video that showed the semi pushed up against a bridge wall with the car seemingly smashed underneath it.

Officials said one person was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Crews worked to slowly open more lanes until the final one reopened shortly before 1:30 p.m.
