Semi Accident Along I-70 and I-435 Causes Kansas City Traffic Delays

Comments (0)
A trucking accident involving a single semi tied up traffic Monday morning when the driver, who was heading from westbound I-70 to southbound I-435, flipped his rig on the ramp to I-435.  The accident caused the semi to lose its load, as well as caused a significant fuel spill that required the fire department's hazardous crew unit to attend to the scene. 

Fortunately, the driver was uninjured in the accident and no other vehicles appear to be involved.  Crews were expected to have the scene cleared by 11:45 a.m.

Trucking accidents are very significant as the loads the trucks carry are so large and heavy, any type of accident can be deadly.  Simply negotiating the ramp leading from one highway to another is obviously difficult in these types of vehicles because of the possibility of the driver flipping the truck due to excessive speed, turning too suddently, or even loads shifting as turns are being made.  Frequently drivers overload,or improperly load their vehicles, which is a danger to all of us on the highway.  Check out our library article, "Overloaded Semi Trucks May Cause Deadly Kansas City Truck Accidents", to get more information on this topic
