Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police said all lanes of westbound 370 near Truman Boulevard re-opened Thursday night after being closed for several hours because body parts were found on the road.

Authorities said they believe 35-year-old Christopher Daughtery's car had a mechanical failure in the early morning hours Thursday. Police said he then walked along the shoulder on 370 before he was hit  by a car and killed. Police said they received a call about someone being hit while attempting to cross the highway around 2:15 a.m.

Police told News 4 an officer on routine patrol was diving on 370 around 5:00 p.m. when he spotted Daughtery's arm. Authorities then closed all westbound lanes, which were closed for just under 6 hours.
