UNIVERSITY CITY (KMOV) -- A 26-year-old man was killed in a wrong-way crash on southbound Interstate 170 early Saturday morning.

At 2:39 a.m., officers responded to the scene for an accident with a vehicle on fire. Police say a vehicle driven by a 52-year-old St. Louis man was traveling the wrong direction, entering I-170 on the Delmar southbound exit ramp, crossing over three lanes of traffic.

On Monday, police identified the victim as Collin Loveless, 26, of Maryland Heights.

The man also did not have his lights on when he struck the other car.

The driver was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries. An investigation is ongoing.
