NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

A man died following a hit-and-run crash on eastbound Interstate 270 near Route 367 Monday afternoon.

The accident occurred around 3:30 p.m. very close to the Lewis and Clark exit (Route 367). According to police, one car was changing lanes when it hit a car being driven by Chad Moore, 29, of St. Louis. Both cars hit the median before Moore's car flipped over.

Moore and the driver of the other car, a 55-year-old man from Bethlato, were taken to a hospital. Moore later died and the driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries.

All eastbound lanes of the interstate were closed for several hours, but reopened later in the evening. 

Authorities are searching for the driver of a tractor trailer that was also involved, but fled the scene.
