LENEXA, Kan. (AP) – Light early morning snow caused slick conditions that led to a 22-vehicle highway accident in suburban Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports eight people sustained minor injuries after 22 vehicles were involved in the accident on a ramp along Highway 69 and Interstate 35 early Sunday.

Dispatchers reported the icy ramp caused drivers to lose control.

Numerous other accidents also were reported in the Kansas City metropolitan area Sunday morning, most of them in southern Johnson County, due to the slick road conditions.
