Black ice and sub-freezing temperatures have created slick roads across the Kansas City area, leading to one fatal and multiple injury crashes.
Southbound Kansas 7 was closed at Nettleton Avenue in Bonner Springs for most of Monday’s rush hour after a fatal crash.
The crash occurred about 7 a.m. as a driver of a pickup truck lost control on northbound K-7 between Nettleton and Kansas 32 and crossed over into the southbound lanes, colliding with a sedan.
Police across the metro area urged drivers to use caution, drive slowly and allow extra time to get to work. Residential streets as well as bridges and exit and entrance ramps are among the most treacherous.
