(KMOV) -- Traffic on eastbound I-70 in Foristell, Missouri is backed-up after an accident involving a tractor-trailer that caught fire.
It happened around 9 a.m. on Tuesday on I-70 near the St. Charles County/Warren County line.
Authorities said a car hauler headed eastbound on I-70 blew a tire that caused an axle to break and another tire to blow. As a result a fire broke out on the hauler that destroyed four band new Ford Fusion cars. Eastbound 70 was shut down for approximately an hour and a half.
There were no injuries although there were several other minor traffic accidents as a result of the hauler fire.
