KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Drivers headed toward downtown Kansas City on I-35 from the Northland are moving again, but only after a very slow morning. A crash between a cattle trailer and SUV closed southbound Interstate 35 at Front Street near the Bond Bridge, but all lanes have reopened.

Kansas City police say officers drove up on the crash at about 1:45 a.m. While neither driver was hurt, several of the animals died. The scene remains active as crews work to clear the crash and load the surviving animals on another trailer.

The drive time from the I-29/35 split to downtown was beyond an hour at peak rush hour.
