The 40-year-old driver of the Ford Econoline was taken to the hospital for a complaint of pain. No other serious injuries were reported. The KHP report said all drivers were wearing their seatbelts.

Traffic was diverted at I-235 and Central while crews worked to investigate and clear the crash scene.
