SHAWNEE CO., Kan. (WIBW) - An overturned semi blocked a road in southeast Shawnee County Wednesday afternoon into the evening hours.

Authorities were called just after 4 pm to SE Shadden Road, a few blocks south of 101st Street. Shawnee County Sheriff's deputies on the scene say the truck's wheels went off the side of the road and the driver overcorrected, causing the truck to tip on its side.
