Two injured in crash that closed K-96 for several hours


A wrong-way crash Friday morning injured two people and shut down a busy road for hours. 

It happened near K-96 and Hillside around 8:30 a.m.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers tell KSN News that a red truck going eastbound went into the westbound lanes near the bridge. 

It then hit two cars, leaving a 22-year-old woman in a Hyundai with serious injuries. The driver of the pickup, a 31-year-old man, was taken to the hospital in serious condition. 

In a report, troopers said the driver of the truck may have suffered a medical condition.

Traffic was shut down for several hours.
