ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) --  Icy conditions during Monday morning's commute led to multiple accidents and lane closures in the St. Louis area.

Travel was slowed in downtown around 6;15 a.m. Monday as a multi-vehicle accident initially closed lanes on westbound I-64 near Busch Stadium.  Shortly after that accident, emergency crews closed all westbound lanes, and all but one eastbound lane through downtown. Those accidents have been cleared.
