A semi truck driver was injured after an accident at 6:35 a.m. April 2 on I-70 westbound, just west of the I-670 split in Kansas City, Kan.
A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper’s crash log stated that the driver was going too fast for the conditions, lost control and struck the barrier wall. A thunderstorm with rain and lightning occurred this morning and some areas reported hail.
The driver, a 42-year-old man from Lansing, Kan., was taken to a hospital in Kansas City, Kan.
The interstate has reopened to traffic.
