A multi-vehicle wreck caused by slick roads near the intersection of Tuttle Creek Boulevard and Kimball Avenue left one woman injured and disrupted traffic for hours on Wednesday evening.
According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, three vehicles, including a Nissan Altima, Mercury Grand Marquis and a semi truck, stopped at a red light in the southbound lane of Tuttle Creek Boulevard, just north of Kimball Ave., at 5:20 p.m.
A GMC Arcadia driven by Jesse Flores, 23, of Manhattan, came up behind the line of vehicles, but could not stop because of slick road conditions, causing a chain reaction of crashes.
Emergency responders took a passenger in the Nissan, Brianna Porter, 25, of Manhattan, to Ascension Via Christi Hospital for treatment of a suspected minor injury.
Officials did not report any other injuries.
Other drivers and passengers involved were Brittney Porter, 24, of Mableton, Georgia; Brandon Iida, 23, of Manhattan; Richard Collier, 34, of Hollywood, Florida; and John Stivers, 18, of Abilene.
Everyone was wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
A portion of Tuttle Creek Boulevard from Marlatt to Kimball avenues was closed for almost three hours as crews worked the scene.
