3 individuals were injured in a traffic accident near Speedway just south of 173rd on Kennedy Avenue today. The accident occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. Upon arrival, ambulance drivers discovered a pregnant woman lying on the ground. Two other individuals required medical attention and another ambulance was called. Traffic was re-routed on Kennedy Avenue so that crews could deal with the injured and clear the debris.
While crews were still cleaning up the Kennedy Avenue accident, a report came in of a barrel of oil that had been dropped on the entrance ramp to I-80 at Kennedy Avenue. This caused more traffic nightmares in the area as that cleanup delayed opening the roadway even more.
