SALINA, Kan. (WIBW) - The trailer of a semi-truck buckled and collapsed along I-135 in Saline Co. on Friday morning.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says troopers worked a unique case on Friday morning, Aug. 19, on I-135 just south of I-70 in Saline Co.

According to officials on the scene, the trailer of a northbound semi-truck collapsed and buckled in half.

KHP noted that there were no traffic delays as the truck was able to maneuver into the closed portion of a construction zone. However, drivers have been urged to slow down as first responders assist and attempt to clear the scene.

Trooper Ben Gardner told 13 NEWS the semi had been overloaded with batteries, which caused the trailer to buckle.
