Truck overturns on turnpike; westbound traffic backed up

May 20, 2008

A semitrailer rolled over this morning 10 miles east of Lawrence on Interstate 70 and was blocking westbound traffic, a Kansas Turnpike Authority dispatcher said.

Troopers are still gathering information, but minor injuries have been reported, the dispatcher said.

The rollover wreck occurred in Leavenworth County, 3 miles west of the eastern turnpike toll and ticket booth. The dispatcher said initially the truck was blocking some traffic, but as of 11:15 a.m. troopers reported it no longer was.

Witnesses reported traffic was down to one lane earlier this morning.
