KANSAS CITY, MO - A multi-vehicle wreck in Kansas City Friday morning left several people hospitalized, police said.
According to KSHB, the incident began when the driver of a Chevrolet pulled over on Interstate 435 near Bannister Road at about 5:30 a.m. with electrical problems. The driver turned on the car's hazards and another driver stopped to help.
