A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper has been treated for injuries after his vehicle was involved in an accident on Interstate 70.

The accident happened Saturday afternoon near Topeka as a wintry mix was making roads slick, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the accident was weather-related.

Few details have been released but emergency responders say the trooper’s injuries did not appear to be severe, and he was able to enter an ambulance without assistance. He was taken to a Topeka hospital for treatment.

Several accidents were reported across the state, many of them related to freezing drizzle and snow.
