    Several cars crashed on the roadways this morning. Our photographer went out to three different wrecks within an hour and a half. One was off Highway 7 and 75th. A car went off the road and crashed into a ditch. Another wreck was at the intersection of Lee and 67th. That wreck required one car to be towed from the scene. The final crash was a fender bender on Lee and Sheridan. The heavy rain did cause some visibility problems while on the roads.
