(KMOV.com) -- Two people are dead after their car flipped over and caught fire on Interstate 170 in St. Louis County.

The accident happened just before 6:00 a.m. on Interstate 170 near Scudder Avenue. Authorities confirmed the vehicle Nicholas Nelson, 27, was driving overturned and landed on the guardrail. He and a passenger, Liana Rogers Elbert, 38, were both killed in the single-car accident. 

For over an hour, multiple north and southbound lanes were shut down on the highway.

An off-duty St. Louis County police officer and Berkeley officers tried to put out the fire with extinguishers and tried in vain to open doors to the damaged car.
