KANSAS CITY, Mo. — At least one person suffered serious injures in a crash that closed part of a busy metro interstate during the Friday morning rush hour.

Police said several vehicles were involved in the crash in the southbound lanes of Interstate 435 near Bannister.

Investigators said the driver of a car with an electrical issue pulled over on the inside shoulder of the highway. Another driver stopped to help. Police said someone driving a Ford Explorer hit the two parked vehicles while traveling at highway speed.

The impact caused the driver of the Ford to lose control and overturn. The people in that car, as well as a person in one of the other cars were injured in the crash.

Emergency crews closed the impacted section of I-435 and directed drivers on to 87th Street to detour around the wreck.

The highway reopened about an hour later, but the impact to traffic lingered throughout the morning.
