One person has been killed on the off ramp from Interstate 35 to a northeast Kansas weigh station.
The Kansas City Star reports that three-vehicle accident happened Friday night a few miles south of Olathe. The Kansas Highway Patrol says the victim and another person were standing between two parked tractor-trailers when a third rig came onto the icy ramp and lost control.
The out-of-control truck’s trailer struck one of the parked truck’s trailers. The victim then became pinned between the two parked tractor-trailers.
