SALINA, Kan. — A heavy snowstorm is moving across central Kansas, causing slick driving conditions leading to several crashes on February 25.

“We are working a significant amount of wrecks,” Trooper Ben with the Kansas Highway Patrol said in a video on Facebook.

Trooper Ben said there were multiple crashes on I-135 around Salina. He also said there were crashes in Lincoln County, along and north of I-70, with reports of jack-knived semi-trucks.
