Injury accident closes K-96 ramp

One person has been seriously injured in a semi crash on the ramp linking eastbound K-96 to eastbound Kellogg this morning, authorities said.

The semi, which was hauling ice cream, crashed while the driver was negotiating the ramp just before 6:45 a.m., a Sedgwick County dispatcher said. The crash will keep the ramp closed for several hours.

A 50-year-old man who was a passenger in the semi has been taken to Wesley Medical Center in potentially critical condition, a Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher said. The driver did not require hospitalization.

The truck was hauling frozen goods, but they did not spill in the crash, the highway patrol dispatcher said.
