(KMOV) -- Emergency crews were called to the scene of a serious accident on southbound I-270.
It happened around 7:15 a.m. on Thursday just north of I-44.
Two vehicles were involved in the crash.
Video from SkyZoom 4 shows that both vehicles were heavily damaged.
A News 4 crew on the scene of the accident said that emergency workers had to use the Jaws of Life to get the victims out of an SUV that was involved in the wreck. One woman was able to walk to the ambulance. Another victim was taken to an ambulance on a stretcher. A third victim in another vehicle was also taken away in an ambulance. No word yet on the extent of the victims' injuries.
At least two lanes of the highway were shut down in that area and traffic was backed up for miles in both directions. They have since reopened all lanes and traffic has cleared.
