A two-vehicle accident on I-470 in the eastbound lanes of the Kansas Turnpike has sent one person to the hospital.

According to a KSNT News photographer on the scene, both lanes of traffic were shutdown for a time after the accident happened just before 7 am Thursday. Traffic has since been allowed along the stretch of highway involved. We’re told at least one person has been taken to a local hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is handling the accident.
