CSW BREAKING: Northbound U.S. 71 Closed at 155th Street Due To 18-Wheeler Crash

The driver is reportedly "not injured" according to Belton MO police on-the-scene- but an "18-wheeler on it's side" has closed northbound U.S. 71 at 155th Street on the Jackson-Cass counties line south of Grandview.

The crash was reported at 9:29 a.m.- and police are diverting northbound U.S. 71 traffic to the 155th Street off-ramp.

The semi-truck's trailer is reported to be "fully-loaded with lumber" so the highway may be closed or restricted northbound at the crash scene for several hours.
