All lanes open after accident on I-64 involving overturned tractor trailer

(KMOV.com) -- Two people escaped serious injury following a rollover accident involving a tractor trailer.

The accident happened just before 7 p.m. on Saturday on eastbound Interstate 64 on the Kingshighway exit ramp in St. Louis.

According to Captain Sutter with the St. Louis Fire Department, the accident involved a car and a tractor trailer.  Sutter said two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 

Crews on the scene said it would take a while to clear the accident and it did.  It took crews nearly five hours to clear the wreckage.  Police had to close all but one lane of I-64 heading east and the Kingshighway exit ramp.  The accident happened on the exit ramp, but authorities said that closing two lanes of the interstate allowed them more room to work.

All lanes have reopened and traffic is moving freely.
