ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A portion of Riverview was closed in both directions in north St. Louis Tuesday following a deadly crash Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred around 6:30 a.m. and closed both directions of the roadway at Bluff Drive.

Gary Elmer, 64, was driving north on Riverview when police say he tried to make a left turn onto Valley Drive, and may have veered into the southbound lanes of Riverview.

Another car going southbound on Riverview then hit Elmer's car head-on, police said. 

Elmer was taken to a hospital where he later died. The driver of the other car, a 39-year-old man, was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Riverview Drive was closed for several hours but later re-opened.
