Water rescue shuts down I-70 at Broadway

Posted: Updated:

A motorist was hospitalized Tuesday morning during what firefighters called a high-water rescue that shut down westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near Broadway Boulevard in Kansas City, MO.

Kansas City Fire Department responded around 8:30 a.m. to a water rescue call in which at least two vehicles were involved in a crash in high water.

The crash started with a semi truck hitting the guardrail, causing a chain reaction, police said. 

One person was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, although it's not clear which vehicle that motorist was in.

A black pickup was also involved in the wreck.

Crews started towing the vehicles around 9:10 a.m., and cleared the scene and reopened the interstate before 9:30 a.m.
