GOVE COUNTY, Kan. (KAKE) - A Kansas Highway Patrol cruiser was struck and two semi-trailers collided during Monday's snow storm along Interstate 70.

The crash occurred around 3:40 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-70 about five miles east of Grainfield. KHP says Trooper Thad Wheeles was working a prior non-injury crash involving multiple vehicles, and was providing traffic control around the scene, when a Freightliner semi struck Wheeles' parked cruiser.

The Freightliner then continued to slide before striking road debris and hit a Toyota Highlander, who was trying to move around the debris. The Freightliner then continued eastbound, jackknifing until it was stopped by the first jackknifed semi from the earlier crash.

After being hit, the Highlander continued past the jackknifed semi before coming to rest on its wheels, facing north. The patrol cruiser came to rest in the south ditch.

Wheeles was not in the cruiser at the time of the crash. The driver of the Freightliner was not injured, and the driver of the Highlander and a passenger were not injured. However, another passenger in the Highlander was transported to Quinter Hospital with minor injuries.

The crash was one of 23 total crashes that Kansas Highway Patrol Troop D worked during Monday's storm in northwest Kansas.
