(BROWN COUNTY, Ks.)—*UPDATE: Highway 36 reopens after a large crash shut down the road Thursday morning.*

A large crash has shut down the westbound lanes of Highway 36 in Kansas, just past the Missouri border, according to authorities.

An alert from the Brown County Sheriff's Office said Highway 36 is impassable between Hiawatha and Raccoon Road due to a large accident.

The Missouri Department of Transportation said crews from the Kansas Highway Patrol are waiting for a crane from Topeka to clear the scene.

KHP is diverting motorists at Route 7 in Kansas. To avoid delays, if you're able, find an alternate route other than US Route 36 westbound and Route 7.

The highway is expected to be closed for three to four hours.

No word yet on how many vehicles are involved or any injuries.

Snow is expected to continue overnight being most widespread before midnight. This system could bring a little bit of a wintry mix, mainly along Highway 36 and south. That is where snow may mix in with some sleet or freezing rain. Ice accumulations are possible towards Platte County and the KC metro.
