TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A U-Haul moving van blocked traffic along I-70 on the Kansas Turnpike Sunday afternoon after it overturned and landed across the center median.

The crash happened just after 4 p.m. about a half mile from the Leavenworth-Wyandotte County line.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said the U-Haul was headed westbound on I-70 when it veered off to the right and left the road. It then got back on the interstate, crossed both lanes, and hit the barrier wall on the left shoulder.

The U-Haul overturned on its side across the center median, blocking traffic on both sides.

KHP identified the driver as Calvin Tate, 21, of Georgia.

They said he complained of pain, but did not need to go to the hospital.
