Traffic Backed up on I-44 Eastbound

Uncategorized

A crash just west of Sarcoxie is causing backups along interstate 44 this evening.

A tractor trailer flipped on its side causing the load to go across the shoulder.

Wrecker crews drug the tractor trailer further up the interstate to clear up the area.

Traffic is down to one lane through the crash area.

Here’s the latest from MODOT:
