LENEXA, KS (KCTV) -

A two-vehicle crash on westbound Interstate 435 is slowing the evening commute. A separate crash on eastbound Interstate 70 near Noland Road has also snarled traffic.

The wreck in Johnson County happened about 3:22 p.m. on I-435 past Quivira.

Chopper 5 flew over the scene and showed a pick-up truck with its bed smashed in. The vehicle sat on its side up an embankment. There's no word on the extent of injuries.

The right lane of the roadway is closed and KC Scout officials expect it to re-open shortly after 4 p.m.

In the I-70 crash, several vehicles were involved and one vehicle caught fire. The crash has closed all but one eastbound lane near Noland.
