ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – All lanes of eastbound Interstate 70 near Grand were closed Friday afternoon after a man was fatally struck.

The accident occurred before 12:30 p.m. closing all eastbound lanes of the interstate for several hours. The lanes re-open around 3:30 p.m.

The victim was later identified as 25-year-old Alex Case. The drivers who hit Case say they tried to swerve to avoid him because he was standing in the middle of the road. 

It is still unclear why Case was in the middle of the interstate.
