I-135 open again after accidents snarl morning commute

Northbound I-135 is open again, after a couple of accidents brought traffic to a standstill through the morning commute.

The accidents were reported in the northbound lanes at Pawnee and Harry, within a few minutes of each other shortly before 7 a.m., a Sedgwick County dispatcher said.

One minor injury was reported in one of the accidents, but the victim refused treatment at the scene.

The lanes were shut down for about 90 minutes before the lanes reopened at 8:21 a.m., a Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher said.
