TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A multi-car wreck blocked traffic on the Oakland Expressway.

The incident happened around 6:21 p.m. on the K-4 bridge between the east Topeka turnpike interchange and Hwy. 24. Traffic was shut down on both ends of the bridge while the wreck was cleared.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports that a pickup crossed the center line and ran head-on into an oncoming SUV. That caused a car to rear-end the SUV and still another car to smash into that one.
KHP said none of the people were seriously hurt, although the truck's driver, 41 year-old Craig Kelley, of Clearwater, was taken to the hospital to get checked out.

A witness, who happened to be driving in the area at the time sent in the attached video.
