ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – One lane of eastbound Interstate 270 was closed following an accident involving a tractor-trailer Wednesday morning.

The accident happened around 8:30 a.m. in the interstate’s fast lane near the Bellefontaine Road exit.

Officials with the Missouri Highway Patrol said someone in a four-door passenger car hit the back of a semi-trailer, causing the vehicle to become wedged underneath.

The truck's trailer was reportedly loaded with chunks of concrete.

The extent of any injuries was unknown and it was not determined what caused the wreck.

Emergency crews cleared the wreckage and all lanes have reopened.
