Northbound I-635 closed briefly Sunday morning following crashes
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KCTV) - Heavy fog and slick roads in the Kansas City area made for tougher driving conditions and multiple wrecks throughout the metro area Sunday morning. After several non-injury crashes occurred on northbound I-635 in the area of I-70, emergency personnel closed the road briefly Sunday morning.
One of the crashes involved four vehicles and included a car running into a Kansas City Kansas Fire Department fire truck.
According to KCK police, the northbound road was closed to give Kansas Department of Transportation workers a chance to better salt and sand the roadway in an effort to eliminate slickness.
The first reported crash in the area happened just before 8 a.m. On southbound I-635, traffic continued to be slow in the area of I-70 as the area was being cleared and treated.
The northbound I-635 area was closed beginning at the Kansas Avenue exit.
One person from a southbound crash and one person from a northbound crash were sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
