ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A deadly crash closed lanes of Interstate 270 in West County Sunday evening, as snow and cold temperatures cause accidents and slow travel across the St. Louis area.
One person is dead after a multi-vehicle crash on I-270 northbound near Manchester Road, officials said. It is not yet known if anyone else was injured.
MoDOT said the accident was reported at 3:15 p.m. and caused delays for over two hours. All lanes are now open.
