(KMOV) -- The Poplar Street Bridge was shut down for almost five hours early Tuesday morning, as part of a car hung off the edge of the eastbound lanes.

Police say the driver of that car was driving the wrong way on Interstate-64 when he hit another vehicle, lost control, hit a guardrail nearly sending the car over the edge of the bridge, and became trapped in his car.

That man is in critical condition after being rescued from inside the over-hanging car.

Police are still trying to figure out why he was driving the wrong way.
