A crash on U.S. Highway 75 slowed Thursday morning traffic to a crawl.

The crash happened at the I-70 west exit on southbound Highway 75 just before 7:30 a.m. The right lane on southbound Highway 75 was blocked, reducing traffic to one lane. Emergency crews are on scene, but do not have an estimate as to how long it will take to clear. A Topeka police watch commander confirmed it is an injury accident, though the severity of injuries to the vehicles’ occupants is not known at this time.

Crews are advising drivers avoid the area and take an alternate route on their commute this morning.
