Crash Involving Semi Trailer and Car Injures Two

On Monday evening, July 25, a crash involving a semi trailer and a car on Interstate 35 sent two people to hospital.

According to authorities the accident happened on the interstate by the Northeast Antioch Road exit in Kansas City north. It involved a Ford Escort and a semi trailer and witnesses said that it sounded as though a bomb had exploded. It appears that there was an explosion on the truck which then rolled down the hill, colliding with the Ford and smashed it entirely.

The driver of the Ford Escort was a 28 year old female and mother of three children. She was taken to hospital suffering from several injuries, including a broken nose. The truck driver was also injured but it is believed his injuries are not life threatening.

Immediately after the crash, investigators thought a homeless man may be trapped under the wreckage but luckily that was not the case.

Hazardous materials crews were called to the scene to deal with spilling diesel fuel from the rig.

The cause of the wreck is still under investigation.
