Two injured in four-vehicle accident on I-70 near Lawrence; traffic stopped for over two hours

July 2, 2011


Eastbound traffic on I-70 near Lawrence is moving again after a four-vehicle accident closed lanes for about two-and-a-half hours at about 11:40 a.m. Saturday.

The accident happened just east of Lawrence in Leavenworth County.

Kansas Turnpike Authority dispatchers said two people were taken to Kansas University Hospital with minor injuries. A helicopter ambulance was called to the scene, but was there only as a precaution.

No other information on the extent of the injuries is currently available.

Check for updates.

Any comparison to accidents on other roads are disrespectful and should be avoided.

Two days in a row in close to the same spot? Curious.

Couldn't be the speed limit went up to 80 er I mean 75 could it?

I think that's where the construction is, so the speed limit wouldn't be up there anyway.
