ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – An overturned semi-truck is causing delays and lane closures on southbound Interstate 55.

The truck overturned, blocking four lanes of the interstate near Bates and Loughborough, around 11:30 a.m. Monday. Shortly before noon, crews closed all southbound lanes of the interstate as they worked to upright and tow away the semi-truck. About 10 minutes later, two lanes of the interstate were reopened to traffic.

It is unknown if anyone was injured in the incident, but the fire department tweeted that they were assessing occupants for injuries.

It is unknown when all lanes of the interstate will reopen.
