KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Heavy rains likely contributed to a large rock slide in Swope Park on Saturday that shut down part of Blue River Road.

Authorities were called when it was discovered that large boulders were blocking Blue River Road near the intersection with Oldham Road.

Fortunately, no one was around when the tumble happened.

Crews spent Saturday and Sunday removing the rocks.
