One person was killed Friday night in a three-vehicle wreck on the off ramp from Interstate 35 to a weigh station a few miles south of Olathe.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, two semis were parked on the shoulder of the northbound ramp. The victim and another person were standing between the trucks when a third semi came onto the icy ramp and lost control.
That truck’s trailer swung to the right, hitting the trailer of the rear truck, which slid forward and pinned the victim between the two parked semis.
The name of the victim was unavailable Saturday night.
