(KMOV) -- One person was killed in a wreck involving a semi truck on Interstate 44 in south St. Louis Monday.
Officials say the victim was driving on the interstate near the Jefferson exit around 11 a.m. when their vehicle slid on an ice-covered part of the road and struck a passing tractor-trailer.
The victim's identity has not been released at this time.
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.
