KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Interstate 70 in downtown Kansas City is closed after a tractor-trailer truck drove over a guardrail and dropped onto the interstate.
The accident occurred early Tuesday in downtown Kansas City.
Investigators say the truck was on a ramp from Interstate 35 to I-70 when it went along the guardrail before falling over the edge. The truck landed on its roof and debris was thrown across eastbound lanes of Interstate 70.
The driver was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
The westbound lanes were closed to allow emergency vehicles and cleanup vehicles to reach the crash site.
