(KMOV.com) -- An accident involving an overturned vehicle caused a major back up for commuters heading westbound on Interstate 270 on the Chain of Rocks Bridge Monday morning.
 
The accident happened after 6 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the bridge.  One vehicle came to rest upside down in the right lane.  It is not known if other vehicles were involved or if anyone was injured.  
 
At one point, both westbound lanes of the bridge were closed while emergency crews assessed the situation.  News 4 photojournalist Nick Zervos was in Sky Zoom 4 and said traffic was backed up well into the Metro-East.
 
All lanes have since reopened and traffic is flowing freely.
