The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating a two car crash that ended with a guard rail piercing through one car.

Shawnee Police dispatched officers to the area of Interstate 435 and Midland just before 7:30 Tuesday morning, after dispatchers received multiple 911 calls reporting an accident. At least one of the callers reported that a vehicle had crossed through the median and struck a guard rail.

Officers located the crash on Interstate 435 between Shawnee Mission Parkway and Midland Drive.

At the scene, one car came to rest on the inside shoulder of northbound I-435 with a guard rail entering the passenger compartment through the engine bay. The end of the guard rail could be seen sticking out of the rear windshield of the car. The second vehicle came to rest in the southbound lanes on I-435.

Johnson County Med-Act reported three minor injuries at the scene. Only one of those injured people was transported by Med-Act to an area hospital.

Troopers say a 2007 Toyota Corolla was southbound in the outside lane, trying to make a lane change, when it was cutoff by an unknown vehicle. The driver of the Toyota swerved to avoid a collision, lost control, and struck a 2007 Cadillac STS, which was also southbound.

The collision forced the Cadillac into the median and the guard rail on the northbound side of the Interstate.

Troopers have identified the driver of the Toyota as a 30-year-old Lenexa woman. There was also a 7-year-old in the Toyota. Both sustained minor injuries, but were not transported by ambulance.

The driver of the Cadillac has been identified as a 64-year-old Topeka man. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his minor injuries.
