Overland Park police on Friday released a video showing at least 15 vehicles rear-ending each other in a domino effect started by one fender-bender in heavy traffic.
The wrecks occurred Thursday near Blue Valley West High School on Antioch Road, according to police, who offered the video as an object lesson in driver safety.
The video, captured by a nearby traffic camera, shows a series of crashes set off when one car rear-ended another. The vehicles following behind fail to stop and, one by one, pile up on each other.
“Stay alert when you’re behind the wheel and be sure to leave plenty of room between you and the car in front of you,” a police official wrote in a Facebook post with the video.
