Crash involving FedEx truck closes stretch of I-29 north of Kansas City


PLATTE CITY, Mo. — All lanes of Interstate 29 north of the metro reopened shortly before 9 a.m after a multi-vehicle crash.

The crash involved several cars and a FedEx truck and closed the southbound lanes of I-29 at U Highway for more than three hours Friday morning. Crews said the FedEx truck blocked part of the highway. They had to tow it off the highway before reopening the lanes to traffic.

At one point the backup was 45 minutes.

The crash damaged a guardrail in the area that will eventually need to be repaired.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said one person was injured in the crash.
