SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

An accident involving a tractor trailer closed three lanes of NB I-55 just south of downtown St. Louis at the beginning of rush hour Tuesday.

The accident occurred around 3:00 p.m. at I-55/44 near Broadway. A liquid from the truck was on the road and being tended to by crews, as workers tried to clear the scene.

The scene caused a massive traffic back up in both directions, but the accident site was cleared shortly before 4:30 p.m.

One victim was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.
