All lanes of eastbound I-44 were closed from Grand to Jefferson as crews worked to clean up the scene. The interstate reopened around 1 p.m.

The cause of the wreck was unknown.

The accident happened as dropping temperatues kept many roads in bad condition a day after the St. Louis area received about 10 inches of snow.
