KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A dense fog advisory was put in place for the metro until 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The freezing fog had the potential to cause untreated roads to ice over.

The fog and ice caused a few crashes during the Tuesday morning commute.

An crash on Interstate 435 northbound at Kansas 32 caused several lanes to close around 6:30 a.m. No one was seriously hurt in that incident.

There were also crashes on Interstate 70 on both the Kansas and Missouri side, and 169 Highway close to downtown.

First responders were clearing the accidents relatively quickly, but they still caused delays.

Though the morning fog was slowing drivers, flights out of the Kansas City International Airport seemed to be on time for the morning.
