At least one person was injured Monday morning when a tractor-trailer and FedEx box truck collided on eastbound Interstate 435.

The crash occurred about 7:45 a.m. The crash forced the two right lanes of the highway to be closed as crews cleaned up a diesel fuel spill.

Traffic was getting past the crash on one lane, but it quickly backed up beyond Lackman Road.
