Stop-and-go traffic may seem like a tedious inconvenience, but it can still be very dangerous. It’s easy to let your guard down and become complacent, thinking that slow-moving traffic is less hazardous than being around faster-moving vehicles. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. As evidenced by the recent accident on I35 221 Northbound, even in stop-and-go traffic, accidents and injuries can still occur.
On April 3, 2023, a collision occurred on I-35 Northbound, just south of I-435, in Johnson County, Kansas. The accident involved two vehicles, a 2015 Ford Escape and a 2012 Buick LaCrosse, in stop-and-go traffic. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol Report, the Ford Escape, driven by Jonathan D. Clemmons of Liberty, Missouri, rear-ended the Buick LaCrosse, driven by Joseph C. Jackson of Kansas City, Missouri.
Fortunately, both drivers were wearing their seat belts, and there were no apparent serious injuries. However, Joseph C. Jackson was taken to Overland Park Regional Hospital for suspected minor injuries.
