(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Traffic along Interstate 29 was backed up in both directions after two separate vehicle accidents in both lanes of traffic.

The Buchanan County Sheriff's Department says the first accident occurred when a 10 ft. moving truck lost a tire causing the driver to lose control in the northbound lane, the truck ended up on its side in the median according to the sheriff's department. 

At nearly the same time, a vehicle in the southbound lane of I-29 slowed to traffic when another vehicle struck it from behind. 

No one was hurt in both crashes.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
