The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on I-35, at I-435, when a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Kearney resident Shawn E. McBee was heading southbound.

Troopers say traffic was stopped on the interstate when McBee overtook and struck the rear of another southbound vehicle being driven by 29-year-old Liberty resident Chelsey L. Brown.

Brown’s vehicle was then pushed into the rear of a third southbound vehicle being driven by 45-year-old Kearney resident Angela M. Bell.

McBee, Brown, and Bell all reported minor injuries in the crash.

Troopers say all involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
