Snow and icy roads resulted in more than 30 accidents Saturday night on the stretch of Interstate 70 between Topeka and Kansas City.
About a third of the wrecks were vehicles sliding off the road. None of the accidents involved serious or life-threatening injuries, Kansas Turnpike Dispatcher Karrie Winder said.
Road crews were called onto the turnpike, Winder said, but the weather caught up to them.
Particularly bad areas were at mile marker 188 near the Topeka service station and at mile marker 204 near the east Lawrence exit. Just outside of Lawrence, there were several multiple car accidents.
The number of accidents was the result of a busy highway and inclement weather moving in, Winder said.
“Allow extra time, if they have to go somewhere take it slow,” Winder said.
The city of Lawrence also saw it’s fair share of accidents Saturday evening. Among others, reports were made of cars sliding into a sign post and a fire hydrant. Lawrence Police Sgt. Mark Warren said no injuries were reported.
