Multiple Icy Road Crashes in Wichita, KS – 12/15/2019

Icy roads are to blame for at least one fatal crash in Wichita Sunday morning as more than two dozen crashes were reported in less than two hours on city highways as freezing rain moved in late in the morning. Crashes closed several highways and exits as crews cleaned up the wrecks left behind from the icy conditions.

One of the fatal crashes occurred on the north side of the city at I-135/I-235. That area was shut down for a couple hours.
