WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – One person was killed, and two others were injured in a crash Friday on the Kansas Turnpike.

The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. between Webb Road and the K-15 toll plazas.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority tweeted that the crash impacted both south lanes of traffic and caused those heading on the turnpike to detour west on U.S. 400 to I-135 south. Both lanes of the interstate have since reopened.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the crash. A trooper at the scene tells KSN a semi was having a mechanical issue on the shoulder, and an SUV hit the back of the semi and rolled several times.

The trooper said all people inside the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts.

KSN will update this story as we learn more about the crash and those involved.
