(PLATTE COUNTY, Mo.) Multiple injuries have been reported by authorities after a wrong-way accident on I-29 North, just north of Platte City.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop A, a tractor trailer was traveling on I-29 South when it crossed over the median just after 9 p.m. Wednesday evening. The trailer then struck a car heading north on I-29.
