(KMOV.com) – A man was pronounced dead after a crash involving a street sweeper in north St. Louis County early Friday morning.

According to police, Lamont Purley, 30, was driving a 2001 Ford Mustang on the on-ramp to southbound I-270 from St. Charles Rock Road around 12:30 a.m. when he lost control of the car in the rain. Police say Purley’s car hit a concrete median wall and a MoDOT street sweeper.

Purley was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the street sweeper was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. 

 

The two left lanes of southbound I-270 at I-70 were closed while officials worked to clear the wreck.
