(KMOV) – Wednesday morning's rush hour was a mess for Illinois drivers heading into St. Louis after two vehicles wrecked on Interstate 270.

The wreck happened on I-270 westbound between Illinois 111 and the Chain of Rocks Bridge. Only one westbound lane was getting by at one point, but the vehicles were eventually removed from the scene and all lanes were back open by 8 a.m.

Earlier in the morning, traffic was at a standstill and backed up for about five miles past I-255 in Madison County.

Additional details surrounding the wreck were not immediately available.
