CSW BREAKING: Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-635 in Kansas City KS
Northbound I-635 has been closed at State Avenue as a result of a reported "5-vehicle" crash there.
The initial call went out at 12:15 a.m. Thursday morning- with the first arriving fire truck reporting the number of vehicles involved and ordering "2 additional" ambulances.
As of 12:53 a.m.- only two injured were transported by ambulance- a "17-year-old male who was in a car that was being towed by another van and was rear-ended" and a "19-year-old male in the van that was towing" the other vehicle- according to KC-KS FD-EMS radio comms to a local medical trauma center.
Both the injured sounded to be non life-threatening to my EMT-trained ears.
Didn't hear anyone in the vehicle that rear-ended the towed car taken to a hospital- potentially bad news.
Northbound I-635 remains closed as of 1 a.m. with traffic being diverted onto the State Avenue exit.
