TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A crash along I-470 in Topeka slowed traffic Friday morning after a Mustang attempted to cut off a semi-truck.
The Kansas Highway Patrol crash log indicates that just before 7 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 5, officials were called to the area of mile marker 177.1 on eastbound I-470 around Topeka with reports of an accident.
When officials arrived, they said they found a 2019 Ford Mustang driven by Jacob Heaney, 25, of Topeka, had been entering the interstate from the toll plaza when he tried to get around slower traffic.
