Interstate 35 in Kearney is closed in both directions following a multiple-vehicle accident, authorities said.

The Missouri Highway Patrol reported that an overturned tractor-trailer is blocking the southbound lanes. The northbound lanes are blocked by other vehicles involved in the accident.

The accident is unrelated to the 911 outage in the same area, authorities said.
