LEAWOOD, Kan. -- The winter weather that moved into the metro overnight has created slick driving conditions in parts of the metro Thursday morning.

At 143rd and Overbook in Leawood, a pickup truck slid off the road and into a pond.

The driver was able to get out of the vehicle safely, but first responders remained on the scene as they waited for a tow truck driver to arrive.

The driver was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.

As of 8:20 a.m., the incident did not appear to be causing any traffic issues.
