1 dead in weigh station accident near Olathe

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – One person has been killed on the off ramp from Interstate 35 to a northeast Kansas weigh station.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1fBmfnk ) reports that three-vehicle accident happened Friday night a few miles south of Olathe. The Kansas Highway Patrol says the victim and another person were standing between two parked tractor-trailers when a third rig came onto the icy ramp and lost control.

The out-of-control truck’s trailer struck one of the parked truck’s trailers. The victim then became pinned between the two parked tractor-trailers.
