(KMOV) -- An overturned truck blocked lanes of eastbound traffic on Interstate 270 near Lilac.

Police said a semi had just entered into eastbound I-270 at about 3:50 p.m. when it was clipped by a car that was changing lanes. The semi driver then overcompensated and lost control of the truck, flipping it over on its side. The female driver of the car suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Police shut down that part of the interstate for more than an hour, but have cleared the accident and opened all lanes. The truck was hauling bottled water, which was unloaded before the truck was stood back up.
