(KMOV) -- Traffic is moving again on southbound Interstate 270 near I-44 following a serious accident late Tuesday morning.
Authorities say a tractor trailer pulling an unloaded flatbed trailer northbound on 270 rear-ended a passenger car, spinning the car into another car. The tractor trailer veered to its left, crossed every northbound lane and then struck a van at nearly a head on angle.
The drivers of the passenger cars and the tractor trailer were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the van is being treated for serious leg injuries.
