Massive Crashes on I-70

Kansas City police and rescue workers had their hands full last night, with a multiple vehicle crash taking place on I-70 east of the sports complex. The accidents occured when Chiefs fans were on their way to Arrowhead Stadium before the Chiefs' final preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. The pileup comes on the heels of Kansas roads being named third best in the nation.

Around 12 vehicles were estimated to have been in a single crash, which occured on I-70 near Pittman road. The crash closed the eastbound lanes on I-70, and several people were taken to the hospital for injuries. Reports now indicate that traffic is flowing freely again, however there has been no news on the injuries.

Given the chaotic nature of driving to and from football games, it is surprising that incidents like the one that happened last night are not frequent. Traffic is intense, people are continuously trying to move into a better position and alcohol is often involved. Hopefully this crash will make Cheifs and Royals' fans more cautious when driving to and from the stadium.
