TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Highway Patrol says heavy dust led to a seven-vehicle chain reaction accident in northeastern Kansas.

The patrol says the accidents occurred Friday afternoon on Interstate 70 in Geary County. The patrol says the dust storm greatly reduced visibility, causing two vehicles to collide, which led to the chain reaction accidents.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://j.mp/1WxuN5Z ) that of the eight people in the seven vehicles, two suffered injuries that required being taken to area hospitals.

The extent of their injuries is unclear.
